To the family. I know you all do not know me, but I met Jeannien years ago when I was visiting my parents, Lu and Kathleen Little, in Arizona. It was there that I met Jeanien. I was planning my wedding and a bit nervous with all the planning and things to be done. She helped me design my wedding glasses and gave me a lot of really nice beaded pearls, lace, etc. to decorate with. She gave me all kinds of great ideas, which I used. My wedding turned out great and I always think of her everytime I come across my wedding glasses. She also sent us one of our first hand woven beautiful Christmas tree ornaments. Again, she is in my thoughts often throughout the year. I would always ask my mom if she had heard from her dear friend. My mom and dad thought a lot of her. Jeannien was such a nice wonderful person. I did not know she was a beauty queen, but I am not surprised. I always thought she was such a beautiful elegant lady both outwardly and inwardly. I don't know if the family will ever read this, but in the event I wanted to let you know what a wonderful person she was to help me all those years ago. My mom always kept in touch with her through out all these years. I know these are really sad times. My husband just lost his father too this past month. I like to think now they are happy and safe in the hands of God. I will pray for the family and those who loved her so much.
