I always felt at home there.

She had one of these older homes, with wood siding, covered with beautiful Oak trees that hung heavily over the house and yard.

Scattered about in the yard, were chairs here and there, where one could always find a place to sit a spell...have a cup of coffee, laugh and talk a while.

Later on, she added a beautiful pond in her front yard with a bridge and a lovely gazebo right in the middle.

But mostly it was her laughter I remember the most.

She was so easy to talk to and relate to. She always made you feel at home. Comfortable.

And she loved her family, dearly.

Her name was Jennie and she fell asleep in the arms of Jesus, sometime early Friday morning, November sixth.

She was mother to the sweetest and most beautiful ex sister in law a person could possibly have.

I love you Re Re

Our loss is heaven's gain.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your blog about Re Re was very touching. I must also tell you how beautiful I think your blog is. I love the graphics that I've seen. I'm new to blogging and have a lot to learn. I will visit often.

Debra: I'm so sorry. I'm beginning to feel like there is a real crowd up there now, waiting for the day we join them. That is our comfort and our great hope! I know you will miss her.
Blessings today, and prayers for you and your family.

What wonderful testimony of Jennie's impact on your life. Oh that we'd each leave a legacy like that!
May God draw others to Himself through her passing, and may His Comforter bring peace to all your hearts.
