    There are no words when someone passes that you have such fond memories of. Jeannie was one of the kindest, most generous people who opened up her home and shared her recipes, knowledge and talents with me when I was kid. When my brother shared she had passed today, I was overcome with grief. A very special thank you to her amazing family for sharing her with me all those years. I am sincerely and truly sorry for your loss. This was an incredibly special person.
