My condolences to your family. My mother Sarah Jackson-Rodgers was a cousin who had corresponded with Jeannette years ago before she passed away in 1995. They shared family history information. I know my mother truly loved the friendship they had formed. Loss of a loved is hard for those left behind, my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

To the family, It was my pleasure to work with Jeannette as she assisted me with the SOL testing at Brandon Middle School. What a wonderful lady. She taught me that we all have a contribution to make regardless of our health difficulties or our age.

What a joy it was to know such a great and lovely lady! We worked together through the years in the VB school system, and laughed more than you can imagine. Even when Jeanette had to pretend she was enjoying yogurt and applesauce we still laughed! Please try to remember the warm, wonderful times and know she doesn’t suffer any more. Marjorie B. Long
