Dear Judy, Eunice, Cathy, Michelle and Jane, my heart broke when I learned of your Moms passing. So many great memories of our Mother and Father’s friendship along with my own with you girls. So many sleep overs and just loved so much being around your Mom. Such a beautiful warming smile, always. Loved running into her over the years and it was always like we had just seen each other yesterday. My Mother’s best friend. So sorry for the loss of your Mom. And so sorry that I am unable to attend service, but you all are in my heart. Love Deneyse.

We were so very sorry to hear of Jeanette’s passing. She used to babysit our children and they were so fond of her as were we. She always had a smile and we had many a good laugh. We often spoke of Jeanette over the years and wondered how she was. She was a beautiful lady both inside and out and will be missed terribly. Please accept our deepest condolences at this sad time. Love Annette and Bernie Pino
