    I always will remember your laugh and ability to have fun. Your willingness to help others in need. I will never forget the day my Mother called me to say that my brother Leo will be getting married and then the joy of learning it was you. Our love and prayers will always be with you forever.

    Oh this is (another) hard one to comprehend. When I think of you A Jeanne, I think of all the family functions, holidays, weddings and just how much fun you always were to be around and how unbelievably welcomed you (all) made me feel from day one!

    Anytime talking with you was always, first and foremost, your asking all about the kids. When you would comment on my endless Facebook posts it was always complimentary and sweet and you always shared such kind words about my Mom.

    Miss you already and love you forever.
