    Wow I’m so sorry. Growing up next door to people back in the 70′ left me with lasting memories. I hope that Jim and Jeanne are having a good time together. I loved them both like another older brother and Jeanne like the sister I never had. I will always have very fond memories of the time on Alamo.

    Condolences to the family – we are heartbroken! There was never a dull moment in the office with Jeanne around. She was a joy to see when I’d visit through the years. She watched our kids grow up and helped me keep Ken in line! A joy to have called her a friend.

    Jeanne it has been some years since we’ve seen each other , but our friend Tonia Berry kept me up to date on how you were doing and she always let me know that you asked about me . I missed you most of all when I left the office , it was so much fun toying with you and receiving the looks and response you gave me. Take your rest my friend , you will be missed. My condolences to the family ! ” Weeping may endure for a night , but joy comes in the morning “

  9. Katie Riggs says:

    She was a bright light and so much fun to have around the office. I remember many, many times her reaching out with a kind word or finding a way to help out when needed. I remember walking my kids to the car in the rain. She was close behind us and seeing our predicament covered us with her umbrella–getting wet so we could stay dry. So much love to her family right now!! She will be sorely missed.

  10. Glola Krumel says:

    I so loved my years of working with Jeanne. She always had a sweet smile and open heart. She was truly one of a kind. Will be truly missed

  11. Kathy Cowherd says:

    Jeanne made work life much more fun. We had talks about everything and nothing. She was so supportive when I lost my daddy, and then my Frank.
    We shared weddings and baby showers over the years, and oh, all those Christmas parties….
    When she hauled in the old vintage desk, some gasped in horror, while I shrieked with joy, and when she was finally persuaded to get a more official looking one, she knew who would love it as much as she had. I will cherish my desk forever. 💔

  12. Jenifer S Mosley says:

    God bless Megan and buster in their time of sadness
    With love always and forever
