So sorry about your Mom Kim. I was going to go see her next time I was up ! So So sorry !

Dear Family,

I am sorry for your loss, but always grateful for the family times we have shared with Aunt Jeanette, while growing up.  The things I remember most about Aunt Jeannette was her love for baking, her pie crust was heavenly and also her gitty laughter when something really, really tickled her.  I remember my Dad pushing her to tears of laughter with his pranks, which brought him great delight.  

My last visit with Aunt Jeannette was April 11th at the Randolph Manor.  When we arrived she was engrossed in bingo with her new friends.  I was with my brother, George See and we decided not to interupt her bingo.  She already had family company, Ronnie Finch his son Eric and Dennis Root.  We all moved to the living room area where we reminisced about family and fun times growing up in Randolph.  After bingo, Aunt Jeannette happily joined us, adding her enlightened versions to our stories.   It was so good to hear her gitty laughter again as she shared stories of her brother, my Dad (Orson See) and what a prankster he was.  It was a wonderful visit.  She was happy, engaging and a gift to us as a memory.  She accompanied us to the door, gave us a hug and waved good bye. 







Nothing in this world we live in can prepare us to lose someone we love to death. I am sending my condolences to both family and friends due to the death of Jeannette Finch. There is, however, hope for our dear loved ones in the Bible at John 5:28-29 & Rev. 21:4.
