Shari, I am so sorry about your mother. I last spoke with her in February. I've known her for many years and she visited our friend Mabel Hoch at McGregor. After Mabel died, your mom and I remained friends sending cards back and forth. She would send me hand made cards with Kittens and cats on them. I saved everyone of them. I always admired her beautiful flower arrangements and wreaths. She gave me the two wreaths that were hanging on Mabel's door at McGregor and they are hanging in my house now. I live in Mayfield Hts. so I did not see the obituary which was probably in the Lake County News Herald. She loved all of you and her grandchildren and great grandchild. I will miss our phone chats. She always made me feel better. She will be missed by all of us, but she is now in the eternal presence of God. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Take care. Terri Ducey (440 442-5060)

My deepest sympathies to the family. Mrs. Jeannette will truly be missed by all who knew and loved her. We hope that our prayers will help a little. May the “God of all comfort” comfort you all, may you all have a special peace from God during this most difficult time. (2 Cor 1:3,4 - Phil 4:6,7)
