Where should I start. I knew her as Mrs Kennedy my neighbor right next door. She was a wonderful woman always with a smile and a sweet laugh. My memories are surrounded by her kindness and caring always available with an energy of comfort and warmth. She made everyone feel welcome and comfortable with her compassionate ways of saying something or just her smile. I am sure these memories will live on in all of those she touched and shared time with. My prayers are with all of the family and I include myself part of that as my appreciation of her will always be in my heart. My hope is she is with my mom and enjoying some good conversation now. With admiration and Love for this remarkable woman I am grateful to have known her. Peace Love and Happiness. Richard C Swartz

Gene, Liz, and Julie, I am saddened by Johnette's death and wanted to express how sorry I am for your loss.You have been so devoted to her, and it has beena pleasure getting to know such a wonderful family at Spanish Oaks. May God bless your family and strengthen you during this difficult time.

Ann Frech, Savannah, GA

Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Psalms 34:18 tells us that the God of all comfort is "close to the brokenhearted" and Isaiah 25:8 promises that "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." It is our hope that these thoughts will help to ease your sorrow in the days ahead as you cherish your most treasured memories.

Words can't really convey how much Mrs. Kennedy meant to me. She was one of my best friends and confidants as a young man of 10 years old. She was the one adult friend who really seemed to understand me. I will miss her very much.

Johnette was my very favorite first cousin. Her father and my mother were siblings and we spent many happy times together during our childhood years. Our mothers remained life long friends. I am so sorry that you have lost her.
