My thoughts of how sweet Jeannine was to others. I am happy she is not suffering with illness anymore. I haven't been going on computer much so I just found out about her death today. One day , we will meet again in heaven because I know she is there. My sister Judy Sherling went to heaven too.Our time is getting shorter here on earth.
