    Although we have been apart for many years my Aunt Jeanette will always have a special place in my heart. She was so very kind to my mother and me when we needed help. My love and condolences go to you my cousins and other family members. May the Lord give you peace that passes all understanding.
    Love to you all,
    Doretta Turk Lewis Haspel
