She was a good trooper and a great photographer. I had her take my senior photo in my Corps of Cadets uniform the summer after I graduated when I had grown a beard. She thought it was funny!

The Hennigan's were very special to my family. Jim built a wood cart for my son, Mario, that I still have at home. Jeanette loved my family. She took pictures of me and my wife at the 2012 Christmas party. I still remember her beauty and charm. I will miss her. God Bless the Hennigan family.

My oldest sister, Sarah Jeanette Langston Hennigan, inspired me all my life. She was my mentor and hero as I grew up and I tried to imitate her in so many ways, as she was one of the most talented people I've ever known. She had a voice like an angel and loved to sing, likewise she had a wonderful artistic talent in drawing, painting, and photography. She also excelled in her writing ability, especially in the many poems she created through the years. Besides her many God-given talents, my sister was a true beauty in every possible way. The fact that Jeanette was beautiful in face and figure was evident, but more importantly you had only to be in her presence for a few moments to realize that her beauty went to her very core. Her sweet,loving spirit guided her in everything she did and is what drew people to her, filling her life with so many life-long friends. She loved her husband, Jim, and their children, Jon and Joni so very much and adored her five grandchildren. Likewise, that same deep love was extended to our parents, to me and our four siblings, and our extended family members through the years in whatever way she could. She loved God and His Son, Jesus, and she loved this Country - God, family, Country, in that order and next would be friends and Texas A&M. She had a heart as big as Texas and we will miss her gentleness, her devotion to all of us, and will simply miss her presence. We will miss her sweet spirit until we meet again in our Father's House. I will always love you, my beloved sister, and will see you again at Heaven's Gate some day. Elaine

Texas A&M has lost a dear, dear friend, but now God has someone to help organize things in Heaven.
Jeanette was always there with a ready smile and occasionally that look of reproach when it was warranted. When I was needing a hand in The Texas Aggie office, she returned to the job she had held with my predecessor and stayed until the position was filled.
Her poems about Texas A&M spoke volumes on A&M traditions, Aggie comradery, patriotism, and love of school. I wish I had space here to show them.
Her love, dedication and selfless service will live on in her children and grandchildren.
Goodbye, Jeanette. Look forward to seeing you before too long.
