Our hearts and prayers are with Harold and all the family at this time of loss. We so enjoyed knowing Jeanette and admired her courage and faith during this last journey. We loved talking with her and Harold as they shared stories of their life together; she had a great sense of humor and always brought a smile to our face. We are encouraged knowing she is with the Lord and someday we will see her again. We pray God's comfort and strength for Harold and the family...He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds Psalm 147:3.

I am saddened that Jeanette has passed on, but glad that she is in no more pain. She did live for her family. I enjoyed being her daughter-in-law for 22 years. She is a marvelous woman. God did many good works through her talents. Her faith was unshakeable. I know that she will be there to welcome her loving spouse, when God calls Harold home, too. May peace be with the family as they reflect on all that she has done for them. Thank you, Lord, for putting her in my life.
