    Bob, words cannot convey our deep sadness knowing that Jeannie is no longer with us. So many wonderful memories of her over the years, especially when she introduced us to each other which lead to her being my bridesmaid at our wedding. She was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Know that we are here to support you in any way that you need. Our deepest sympathies to you and your family.

    Jeannie Wheaton Shaw — You have always been a fast friend and a caring person– You and Bob have been special people to me for many many years, Your infectious laugh always brought a smile to my face and the twinkle in your eyes were always like a ray of sunshine –no matter the place. We had many good times exploring place new to me and often to you as well. Trips to the Culinary institute with Jeannie and Bob were such special events along the road of life –Wonderful conversation with fantastic food always created an experience not often available to so many . I will keep you and your whole family in prayers everyday . It is with a heavy heart that we are forced to say goodbye but our MEMORIES will live on forever. Mikey

    Bob, Jeannie has always been in our hearts. And there she will, still, always stay. May she always be at peace. She was a vibrant, amazing woman and friend. Her love for you, family, animals, her parties – always the Oscars, movies and skiing, were undiminshed.
    Love, Marcie and Bruce
