Brian I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife. I had only met her one time at Pat's house. I could tell that she was a loving person. May the Lord grant you and yours comfort during this time when your hearts are so heavy with sadness.

To Brian and the family - I was shocked when I heard of Jeanne's passing. I am so sorry for your loss, and my heart goes out to all of you. I will always remember her love for her animals, and I know they will miss her, too. My sincerest condolences.

As a cousin of Jeanne’s, I can attest to Jeanne’s sweet nature from the time she was an adorable child who continued to enjoy her sweets, to share her bright smiles and kind heart, especially with God’s creatures, and to think of others. Her cousins will miss Jeanne. I send my heartfelt condolences to her wonderful , caring husband, Brian’s family, and her loving mother, MaryAnn. God bless Jeanne.

I was shocked to hear about your passing from a nearby resident who seen this in the newspaper. I haven't known you very long, an have only talked to you a hand full of times, but you are one of the sweetest, kindest, caring souls I've ever met. I will miss having conversations with you when stop to deliver packages, but I'll always be giving those dogs a treat and sharing some hugs. Sending love and prayers to Brian and the family. Jeanne will be greatly missed.
