Punkin was one of the strongest people I have ever met. She was the glue that held our family together. You will forever hold a place in our hearts! This isn’t goodbye, we will see you again someday. We love you so much and miss you so much already!

It was a blessing to have Jeanette as a classmate through the years at Morgan County Schools. She always wore a ready smile and was quick with kind words. Know that the entire class of '85 and I are keeping your family in our prayers as you weather this storm. May God send you peace and comfort.

Dear in the eyes of the LORD is the death of his devoted. (Psalm 116:15)

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine. Et lux perpetua luceat eis. Fidelium animae, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.

(Prayer for the Faithful Departed; Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon them. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.)
