    Jeannie you will be missed. I wish I would have gotten to see you one more time, We had a lot of fun running around together when you lived at the apts. We walked our dogs together, BBQs, New Years parties, went for the giant ice cream cones & your favorite corn dogs! We went 4 wheeling in the deep snow in my truck to the Drs. and then there was the time the hospital called & yelled at me I was your ride home at11:30pm & I didn’t know you were even there! We had a good laugh about that later. Then there was the funny casino incident where you fell off your chair (unhurt) & I just thought you were visiting with people! We always had a good time on our adventures goofing off. Loved your life stories too. Very interesting travels.
    Panda & Buddy so cute together. Loved how Panda hugged Buddy the dog & how we used Buddy as bait to get Panda cat to come in for the night. Thanks Jeannie for being my friend and part of my life. You & our memories will not be forgotten. Terri
