    Our spirit of light and life has moved beyond our realm into the next. A good, kind, thoughtful and elegant lady among us. No more bodily issues but now the peace of the passing.

    You are in my thoughts Jeanne. So sorry for the loss of your
    mother. I have very fond memories of her. She always had a smile on her face. I always enjoyed my conversations with her. May family and friends be a comfort to you during this difficult time.

    Jeanne, Jim and Jeanne were good friends of ours for many decades.
    We have many great memories and will for the rest of our lives.
    Maybe they are together again. We understand and are sorrowful for your loss

    Not long ago, Jeanne was home on a day I locked myself out of my house. She and her phone “saved my bacon.” A small thing then, but I will never walk/drive by her house again without thinking about her.
