I'm sorry to hear of Jeanette's passing. She was a very sweet woman. I always enjoyed talking to her when she came into the Doctor's office. She will be missed.

Lynette and Family, deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious mother. The sermon by Dr. Garrett must have had her smiling down from heaven. She truly was a strong, loving christian woman. She will be missed, but her loving spirit lives on!

We want each of you to know that we mourn with you the passing of your wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sibling or friend, of this special angel. Not only was she an angel in her later years but as a child. I had the pleasure of knowing her when we entered first grade until after our high school graduation, seeing her almost daily. She was one of my best friends all through that time and brought much joy to my life (Carol). I have and will always love her. Now she's GOD's Angel. May she rest in peace and may GOD bless each of you. Carol & Charles Hardee
