    When Jeanine and Leon lived in Olde Towne in Leland, we were “across the ditch “ backyard neighbors. I always looked forward to Saturdays cause Jeanine always practiced her music her church that she was going to play on Sunday. I could hear that Baby Grand piano as if it was in my house! Absolutely beautiful. I know she will be missed. I pray God has given her peace.

    I will miss Jeanine’s lovely presence. For so long she graced us with her clear reading of the lectionary. I loved to see her dressed up for Sunday services and delighted in our brief conversations. I am sad to have lost her so suddenly. Rest her soul.
