  1. Aunt Jeanette, you were always a smile and a hug when I needed it, and a spanking and a stern voice when I still needed it, but didn't quit want it. I will always love you, no matter how far apart we are, you are always in my heart. Russell and Melonie, you were always my older cousins that were there when I needed an ear or advice, and I am here for you now in your time of need. Tori, you were always like my little sister, with your big smile and bubbly personality. Please don't lose that. This pain will ease and God will bring peace to your minds and hearts. We love you all and are here for you whenever you need an ear, shoulder, or just a smile. Love, Stephen, Mandy (Ferguson), and Zoey Richard

  3. Hard to believe that I have to go and say goodbye to you. I figured when we were older and grayer(lol), you, Tina, Tammie, and I would sit back in our rocking chairs laughing about all the crazy things we did…I will love you forever..till we meet again…Russell, Melonie, Tori if you need anything call me..love you bunches..

  4. I grew up went to school with your mom starting from 1st grade. We spent the night at each others houses when we were younger. Unfortunately when we grow up move on, we lose touch with our childhood friends, but that didn't mean we stopped caring or thinking about those friends. I was so excited to have recently connected with your mom on Facebook. I'll never forget how sweet she was. She truly was beautiful inside. I know that all three of you, Russell, Melonie, and Tori were very fortunate to have had such a wonderful mom, even if it was only for a short time. I know how hard it is for me to believe that she is gone, so I can only imagine how hard it is for you as her children. She will be GREATLY missed by many. We will ALL miss her smile. You your family are in my prayers. Stay strong for each other and May the Lord bring you peace knowing that your mother is in a wonderful peaceful safe place now she'll live in your hearts forever. Praying for all of you.

  11. Melanie and Family: Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer. I was deeply saddened by your loss. I will cherish the memories of the times we spent together. Your Mom and I were very close at one time. We are with you and your family during this time of grief. There is no way I can even try to imagine what you are going through. All I can do is pray and depend on the Lord to renew your spirits and provide you with what you need. Please accept my condolences on the passing of your mother, who I was privileged to have as a dear neighbor and a friend for many years. Many of her friends share your grief, and I know she will always remain very much alive in the memories of all of us who loved, respected, and treasured her. You are in our prayers. Although it is difficult today to see beyound the sorrow. May looking back in memory help comfort you and your family tomorrow. Love you Mel, if you need anything please contact me.

  13. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to her children, grandchildren, family, friends and co-workers. I didnt know her very well, but my frequent visits to Browns always caught her smiling and happy. My son always remembered her and knew her by name; she just had that wonderful disposition about her. She will be greatly missed!

  17. Russell, Melonie and Tori, Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May God surround you with peace and love during this difficult time. Love, Sally and Rick Toerner and family

  18. We were deeply saddened to hear of your mother's death. A loss of one's mother is a very sad event in a child's life, no matter the circumstance of the loss. But knowing your mom, she wouldn't want everyone sitting around grieving but rather celebrating the wonderful life she led. I'm sure she had few regrets and her greatest legacy will be in each of you children and grandchildren. She was very proud of all of you. Your mom was a beautiful person, inside and out, and will sorely be missed. I know that the thoughts are know doubt overwhelming, that nothing ever will quite be the same. But soon you will have the memory of your mom that will live on in your heart and mind as well as in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved her. May you find peace in knowing that your grief is shared by so many. May these words comfort you and always remember her sweet smile and beautiful nature. May God keep all of you in his embrace during this difficult time.In Sympathy,The Bertrands ~ Patrick, Telesha,Jensen Dru

  19. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day,one more word,one more touch,we may not understand why this has happened or why you had to leave before we were ready to say good-bye,but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you have died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us GREAT MEMORIES TO BEAUTIFUL TO FORGET, ALONG WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL SMILE YOU ALWAYS HAD….. Tori family my thoughts and prayers or with ya'll…

  20. Words cannot express my sorrow for the events that transpired Sunday. Please hold on to the gifts your mother shared with you and continue to make her proud. Jeanette was a wonderful person, full of life, even in dark days. She adored her children and grandchildren. May God wrap his arms around you all as you try to find your way. All my strength, love and support, are yours, now and forever. Love, Heather

  21. Your loving smile will always be with me. Your light will always shine in your childrens hearts. May he bless them and guide them in their loss.In our thoughts and prayers for the family.
