Be with all those whose hearts are broken, Lord. They have had to say goodbye to one they love, and now there is an empty spot in their lives. Fill them with with your peace and the assurance that those who have died in You do not die forever but are in your glorious presence, awaiting the Last Day, when all shall be raised up. Amen

So sorry to learn of your loss. I know my mom (the late Olive Wiseley) considered Jeanette one of her best friends. They enjoyed many happy hours playing cards with the other neighborhood ladies as members of the "No Name Club" many years ago. I remember your mother as a warm, gentle woman who was a great baker. May your good memories comfort you now and in the days to come.

I dearly loved your mom! I've had the privilege of spending time with her every other week for the past 4 1/2 years at Sunrise. She faithfully came to the Bible study that I lead there. I loved hearing her story about her fateful pony ride! I loved her laugh and the twinkle in her eyes. And I loved giving and receiving a hug and kiss every time we saw each other.

Jeanette loved sharing memories of our two families growing up together in our little country church. She always said, "Those were good times!" She also shared about the really hard times, too, and how the Lord helped her through them. How she must be rejoicing to be reunited with Tom, Tim, and your dad! I love and miss your dear mama along with you, and am praying that the Lord will pour out His grace and comfort upon your family!
