I'm so sorry to hear about Jeanne. She was an avid supporter of animal rescue groups in Central Pa. and always made time to stop by adoption events near her home. We loved to hear about Stormin' Norman's antics and always appreciated Jeanne visiting with our foster animals. Please accept my sympathy for your loss. We will miss her.
