  5. Andres Regnier says:

    Oh my dear Jeannine, we were just about to meet for the first time in a very long time. I never did get the chance to tell you why you were my favorite. Well I’ll tell you here, you reminded me of myself when I was around 4 yrs old. The middle child. And I just want you to know, it wasn’t me who ratted you out for putting the hot popcorn pop on the carpet and burning a big hole in it. I tried to cover it up with coffee table but that didn’t work for too long. I felt terribly responsible for that because I was babysitting, I hope you didn’t get into much trouble. I know you grew up to be quite a beautiful woman inside and out and I felt proud of you when we spoke. As the song goes, you were always on my mind…. And you will always be.
    I know you’re going to a better place but that doesn’t make anybody feel any better because you’ll be missed so badly.
    Love Bobo.
