Dear Nancy and family. We are truly sorry for your loss. Jeanne was a really cool person, funny and full of stories. Even though I haven't seen her for many years, Nancy has always kept us up to date on how she was doing. I hope and pray that she is at Peace with The Lord and wish Peace to the family as well.
