    Gerry, Louise, Lynn and Lisa and families. So sorry to hear of Jeanine’s passing. Such a wonderful woman will truly be missed and I will never play cribbage again without remembering her. Once she taught me the game in Windsor it has always been one of my favorite memories. Love to you all and will miss my cribbage coach. Justin
