  • Aunt Jeanie we love you dearly. I have a lot of good memories of you & you will always be in my heart. My favorite memories was when we would visit with you and we cut the lights out and sing. We liked you singing, ” Put My Little Shoes Away”. One of us was shy and everyone knows it wasn’t you. That’s the reason for the lights to be out. Along time again. I’m sure you are having fun singing and enjoying the loved ones that have long gone on, in heaven.

  • Granny you were an amazing person and you were always there when I needed someone to talk to and if I was just with you before you pasted it would’ve made me so happy I miss you so much but you are never forgotten you are always in my heart and right beside me at all times
