Celebrating the life of Jeneane W. Tomlinson
Thank you for signing Jeneane W. Tomlinson's Guestbook
What a beautiful picture of a beautiful person, both inside AND out!
Nick and John, your mom was such a special lady to so many people back home... certainly to my mom and my whole family for over 50 years. Always a kind word for all... that was “Miss Jeaneane”. Lynchburg will not be the same, for sure, and she will never be forgotten .
You and I had our mothers for a long time, but it’s never long enough. Sending my love and prayers and a big hug, Rinne
P.S. Her Chinese Chews will always be remembered with a smile. Planning on baking some today, from the 1964 Lynchburg Elementary School’s “Mother’s Cookbook”. (A Mother’s Day gift we made, and spearheaded by “Miss Doris” Atkinson, our teacher)

God strengthens us by giving us "the power beyond what is normal" to make it through each passing day. Psalm 46:1 says: "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress". Nahum 1:7; God "is a stronghold in the day of distress, and is mindful of those seeking refuge in him". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

The death of a loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are those who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. Jehovah is the God of all comfort. My prayers are with you and your family.
