Guestbook

I knew Jeanette from church. She and Polly Boodt made amazing carmel corn for the bazaars. She also brought her porcelain dolls to the bazaar. Jeanette attended a Bible/book study group l led for five or six years in the early 2000s. I also remember visiting her at Borgess when she had open heart surgery. Her friendship was a gift.
