    I’m gonna miss u forever, my Sister, you were my First Cousin but more like a Sister to me, growing up. I’m gonna miss your voice, I’m gonna miss hearing you imitate people while trying to make us laugh. Lol I’m gonna miss you saying Happy Birthday to me every year. I’m gonna miss seeing you enjoy our family being together on Birthdays and Holidays, while being our DJ playing all the music. We had alot of good times, and good memories. It helps knowing you’re not hurting and in pain anymore, but I’m gonna miss you not being there at our Family Gatherings. I love you Janessa. Shoulda noon dawt. 😥

    Our family has gained another angel way to soon but they are all together in God’s care 💜 I miss them all dearly! Jeannette fought and showed strength through all of her challenging times.
    I will always keep her in my heart and memories. I remember her always making me laugh…it was mostly when she made fun of people 😄 but that was just her crazy personality.
    You got your wings beautiful cousin, I know they have bling on them like you loved. Rest in peace with your baby boy. I love you!

    Am really deeply sorry for the loss. She was my true friend and she loved me a lot. That she was to travel to Kenya to visit me and see the two cows calves she had named cutie pie and papa Murphy. Am so shocked that she went to be with Lord too soon. May her soul RIP
