While flowers are welcome, the family also invites you to express your love to your family and friends by giving them a flower in remembrance of Jenean.

Give Me Your Flowers

I would rather have one little rose

From the garden of a friend.

Than to have the choicest flowers

when my stay on earth must end.

I would rather have a pleasant word

In kindness said to me,

Than flattery when my heart is still

And this life has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile

From friends I know are true.

Than tears shed around my casket

When this world I bid adieu.

Bring me all the flowers today,

Whether pink, or white, or red;

Id rather have one blossom now

Than a truckload when I’m dead.
