Although Jeanette was my cousin she was also my best friend. I lived beside her for many years and we always got along great. We had many good times and enjoyed sitting out on her back porch watching the kittens play. I will miss her and I'm so sorry for the loss of a very Christain person she was truly a woman of God.
