Jeanne, There isn't a day that passes that I don't think about you. I thought it might get easier, but it seems to be getting harder. I remember everything about you and all the wonderful times we shared. I remember how you were always there for me - especially when I was pregnant and then when my kids were born. I remember how everyone wanted Mother to go to the hospice, and I asked you to back me when I wanted her to be able to go home. You did and it still makes me feel good that we were able to relieve her anguish that she would never return to the "chicken farm." And I still can't watch an episode of "Lucy" without thinking about how much fun we had doing the simpliest of things - like wallpapering, spraying each other with perfume at the department store or shopping for wigs, etc. I was never sure which one of us was Ethel and which was Lucy. I guess it didn't matter! I love all my sisters equally, but somehow I don't think anything will ever be the same without you with us. I love you.

I miss you so much. You were my best friend. I still can't believe that you are gone. I know you are still with me. Since you have gone you have given me everything that I ever wanted. I just wanted you to know that I know it is because of you. I know you a part of me. I love you so much. Please comfort Larry and the family. We all miss you so much.

I will pray and pray and pray for your girls and Larry to find a way for their hearts to heal. We will all miss you so very, very much. You were letting us know how much you loved us all up until the very end, even though you had no idea it was coming. Thank you so much for doing all you could to make our celebrations special. I still can't believe you're gone, and I'm sorry I didn't tell you how much I love you when I had the chance. Say hi to GG for me and my girls. We love you all.

My aunt Jeanne was such a special person and I can say I will never meet another peson like her....she was truly one of a kind. My fondest memory was visiting her and Uncle Larry in Chicago when I was yonger. We had a great time cross stiching and playing flash light tag the whole week at there beautiful house. I also remember when my mom would come back from vistis with her she would always bring back something crazy that Aunt jeanne would influence her to buy...exp: Light up flowers and gold shoes. I will also remember her ever time I see an mom had them at her house on one of there visits and we were all forced to try them when she came home yuck.....I still don't like them. I have tons more memorys that I will never forget of my very special Aunt that I will hold close to my heart forever. Don't worry mom, I will always be your best friend. I also wanted to say that I love all my Aunts and Uncles and am so blessed to have such a close family and I hope my Daughter can expirence the same.

Aunt Jeanne,

I just wanted to say that I love you very much and you will be deeply missed. You were such a great presence in our family and meant so much to everyone. I just want to thank you for everything you did for me when I was younger. I don't think I've ever had a chance to let you know how much I appreciate everything you did for me and my mother. You were a wonderful Mom, sister, baboo, aunt and friend to everyone in this family. I know that you are now in a wonderful place with your Mother, Father and Brother. Give them all hugs and kisses for me. You will always hold a special place in my heart.

Love, Jessica

Here is an excerpt from the last email we received from Jeanne written just two days before her death. In no way do I think it was prophetic--she was always reminding us of how lucky we were. This was the last entry to a very long thread about our annual Kris Kringle listing of who would give to whom, how much to spend and who was in and who was out:

"Dearest family, It sounds like everyone is getting cranky.Well, it's
Christmas and we have a lot to be thankful for - a wonderful, loving family
who has gotten so big that changes are happening and us older folks don't
like change so much. Our kids are adults and having their own lives and
that's a good thing. Let's not change any more this year. It's too late
and things have a way of working themselves out. Let's talk about next year
though - it might be time to re-evaluate a little and we could let the next
generation participate in the decision. I love you all and hope to spend
another wonderful, chaotic, noisy Christmas Eve. Once I said to Luis at the
party "You must be crazy to want to be here for all this confusion". He
said "I don't know what I'd be doing without your wonderful family". I was
somewhat ashamed that we have so much love and don't realize that not
everyone does. So there. Reenie, Larry and I will be happy to be Mr. and Mrs. Claus for the adorable
children. Love, Jeanne"

Jeanne has been my sister-in-law for over 35 years and I will miss her greatly. The thing I will cherish most about my memories of Jeanne, is her ever present smile and positive outlook on life. She was always able to make a negative situation into a positive one in just a few thoughtful words. I would find myself saying, "Yeah why didn't I think of that!

When Jeanne lived in Virginia many years ago, I can remember visiting her and rocking her children to sleep while listening to her laughter. Jeanne was always laughing about something which always lifted the hearts of everyone she touched.

Recently I attended Jeanne's 60th birthday party and although it deeply saddened me to later learn of her death, I was proud to be apart of a wonderful celebration of a beautiful woman's life and glad so many family members and friends had a chance to share their love with a last good bye kiss and hug.

I know this has been a rather long post, but I felt obligated to say so many things that I never said to her while she was living. I can feel her presence here with me now as I write this and I know she has spiritually forgiven me.

My deepest sympathy to the family and her beloved husband Larry.

God bless you Jeanne I love you!

I love you and will miss you very much. You were the best sister for me, especially when Mom was sick and when she passed away.
