Life lost in her prime never seems to make sense. We can only keep Jeanne in our hearts and minds forever knowing she was doing what she loved to do.

Jeannie grew up in our neighborhood and everyone loved her.   She was a tomboy and  just "One of the boys" playing all the games we did.

She grew into a beautiful lady.

The last time I saw I was in San Diego, and she was diving on television.  No one believed I grew up with her.

About a year later I found out we lost her in a diving accident.  I was really shocked upset.

Jeannie, We all love you and miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Craig (And all the rest in our neighborhood)
