    I remember Jeanette while growing up in lowertown with her daughter my good friend, my sister Annette. We spent weekends at each other’s house. Playing cards,dancing and recording ourselves singing with her sister’s. Jeanette treated me like her child she was so sweet and made sure we didn’t get in too much trouble lol. My heart breaks for the family I love y’all Becci Tomaino
