God has blessed us as Jeanne’s family to have been able to know her. I know that the full impact of her passing has not hit me yet. I can remember many times that I was able to visit or go camping with her that she always seemed to be wearing an apron. I thought of Christ, who took a towel and girded Himself with it and began to wash His disciples feet. Jesus tells us that if He, our Master, would wash our feet that we should wash each other’s feet. Just as Jesus’ towel represents His servitude to all of humankind…so I think Jeanne’s apron represented her servitude to her family and those that she cared for. Remember the Thanksgiving dinners when she would invite military people who didn’t go home for Thanksgiving or maybe didn’t have a place to call home. Jeanne made them feel like they were at home. She had a servants heart. And now I believe that she is home with Jesus…and I look for the day when we will join in the home-coming of all home-comings/reunions with Jesus and those who have gone before us. Today may YOU know the peace of God that passes all understanding through a relationship with Christ Jesus. Just say yes Lord! God Bless Edward, Dottie, Sherri, Karen and Kim and all of her “sugar babies”.
