Dana, Mark and family, The retired C1/L39 and I send our thoughts and prayers. It doesn't take the pain away but cherish all the great memories. Angela Williams, October 16, 2020 Since Mom and I could not be there in person, we were so thankful that the service was live streamed! It was a beautiful tribute to Aunt Jinny! I have so many precious childhood memories to look back on. Jinny was a very special lady and Mom and I loved her so much. We are both so happy that we were able to be there a few years ago to celebrate her birthday as those will be wonderful memories to hold onto. We are taking comfort that Jinny is back with Doug and all of her siblings. What a welcome committee that must have been for her! Our deepest sympathy to you Dana and to all of Aunt Jinny's loving family. Much love and hugs to you all! Judy Smith and DeDe Roe, October 15, 2020 My thoughts are with you all as you honor Aunt Jinny’s life well lived. She has always been there for me and I considered her a second Mom. I cherish all of the many moments and years I’ve shared with her. She was the best Aunt a girl could have. I know she was the best Mom and GiGi too. Love Loni Our love and sincere condolences to all of you, Ernst Peters Dan and Loni Hatch Loni Hatch, October 13, 2020
