  1. Haven has gained a beautiful sweet soul. I lived next to my great aunt my entire childhood, a total of 17 years. Every Sunday morning I watched her black car cruise down the road, straight to Shiloh Baptist Church. I’ve never once heard her say a foul word about anyone or anything. She always obtained a very peaceful serene attitude with a ruby red lipstick smile. I remember watching her with Jill in her garden as a kid searching for rolley pollies, it made me laugh because anyone who knows Aunt Jeanette knows that she was a very proper woman but they also would know of the very special bond those two share. My heart goes out to all immediate family, your mother/grandmother/great-grandmother/sister was simply precious and will deeply missed by many. I’m in pain that I wasn’t able to say goodbye to the amazing woman that I’ve known my entire life but the greatest happiness is knowing for a fact that a truly beautiful woman is walking with Jesus right now.
