No words can adequately express how much I will miss Jasmine or how precious she will always be to me. I've never known anyone with a sweeter, more loving spirit. Her smile could lift you a thousand feet in the air and her loving demeanor could calm the greatest anxiety.

4 Dear one, you have earned your wings, soar like the angel you are. Rest peacefully. See you later. Eleanor

Jasmine was the epitome of beauty and class, one of the sweetest and sincere people you'll ever meet. When I joined the family in 1977 through marriage Jasmine welcomed me with opened arms. My heart is heavy yet I know Jasmine fought the battle with pride and dignity and will Rest In Peace. Praying for the family to find comfort in one another while celebrating the cherished memories and times God gave her to you.
