  3. Wanda, Brian, Greg, Ivy, Shelly, Scott and Dean,

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother.
    Jeanette will always have a place in my heart. She (as you all know), was the type of mother that opened her home and her heart to kids ( not her own) and showed them love and hopefulness and was a second mother to me. Your mother was a very special person in my growing up and I will always cherish the talks and the memories that I have in my heart for her. Rest in peace Jeannette.
