    My condolences and prayers for the family. Jeanette and Joe have known me all of my life and they have always been family to me, like an aunt and uncle. I was able to visit last week and was glad to see them both. I will remember all of the great times we’ve had with Jeanette as a child and an adult. She will be missed. Mom and Daddy’s life long friends. Always family.
