  1. I will miss seeing Jeanetta out browsing garage sales and local thrift shops. We also shared a love of gardening and would see other rescuing plants @ Lowes!! She was a ray of sunshine and joy. I am grateful to have met such a loving couple as Jeanetta and Dan.

  2. I have such wonderful childhood memories of your mom. She always treated me as her own when I was around. I will always remember her laugh.

    I will pray for comfort and peace for all of you.

    With love,

    Kristy (Mitchell) Dishko

  3. We moved from the Waterloo congregation before Dan & Jeanetta left and we have missed their sweet faces and great Christian attitudes. Jeanetta touched many lives and will be missed by many. Dan, you and the kids are in our thoughts and prayers. If there is anything that we can do, Please give us a call.

  4. Please accept my sincere condolences to the family. May the God of all comfort give you the comfort you need to endure this difficult time and the days ahead (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

  5. It was a special occasion to be with all of you yesterday.

    Sending our love,

    Howard and Jane
