Jeannette and her grandsons

Sometimes life throw us unexpected circumstances and we find that the golden years we looked forward to change a bit.  Jeannette has been a friend to many of us for years and has recently experienced more than her share of hardships. Four years ago she lost her beloved husband, Tom and most recently her daughter Lisa (age 44) leaving Jeannette with the funeral and lawyer costs.

For those who are unaware, Jeannette has chosen to raise Lisa's 13 year old twin sons on her own. This came as no surprise to all of us who know her, respect and appreciate the woman she is. The raising of children is expensive in itself but more difficult on a one income family. Jeannette will now take on a new role in her life, supplying and providing the emotional guidance these young boys needs along with providing for their future.  Any donation made to assist Jeannette and her grandsons would be appreciated.
