I am saddened by the news of Aunt Jeanette's passing. My heart is with you and I am so sorry for the loss of your special mom. I remember her beautiful smile and how kind and sweet she was and of course her great sense of humour. I didn't know her well, but I so enjoyed every time we had a chance to see each other. During one of our few visits she took my hand between her two hands and told me that she was very fond of my mother. The way she spoke about my Mom warmed my heart. My mother, as well, always spoke with much fondness of her. I have always thought of them as kindred spirits. On the few occasions we have spent together Aunt Jeanette would tell me about you girls and your families, she could go on forever talking about each and every one of you. She was so easy to listen to, so upbeat and cheery, and she spoke with so much love. I always enjoyed my visits with Aunt Jeanette and Uncle Leslie, though they may not have seen me for years, they truly made me feel like I had a special place in their hearts. They were such a great inspiration as a couple and their longevity was remarkable. I have happy thoughts of the two of them together hand in hand, once again.
To Aunt Jeanette's daughters and their families your mom well always be remembered with love and joy which she again gave to us when we saw her in June She was a great lady. Love Cousin Maureen and husband Dean
I so enjoyed your mother. Aunt Jeanette was indeed spirited and spiritual... She was fun and had a wonderful sense of humor. Love to all of you, her girls and your families. It is hard to say goodbye at times like this...a piece of me goes with her, and my memories are sweet.
Sorry to hear about your mom passing. Sadly, I did not know her well, though I must have met her a few times when I was very young. I only know from the words of other people what a great mother, wife and human being she was. And also the fact that Jeanette and Les bore 5 wonderful girls, whose company I have enjoyed far too few times. Anyway, it's hard to find the right words to say at times like these without sounding trite or maudlin, but please accept my sincere condolences and may we all meet again.
To the beautiful daughters of Aunt Jeanette and Uncle Les,
So sorry I can't be with you to honour your Mom and celebrate her life. It was always special treat to visit and hear stories of the old days, thoughtful commentary on the nature outside their living room window and a real highlight to have a spirited musical interlude or lively jig performed by Aunt Jeanette! Those memories often make me smile and will always have an important place in my heart.
