To the Families of Jeanine Carter Reddish, We are both sorry to hear the news of the passing of your Mother. Jeanine is my first cousin and I am the daughter of Buddy(Lenieu) & Hazel Carter.
I remember your Mother from our younger days and she was always so sweet and pretty. I have a family photo of her(group picture) at our Granny Carter's house at Christmas time in Jesup and she was the oldest Grandchild on our Carter side of the family.
Each one of you will be in our thoughts and prayers and we hope that with time we can some how stay in touch.
We will not be able to attend her service but you all will be in our thoughts & prayers. Love, Mary & David Varnedoe

Dear Reddish family. I am so sorry for your loss. Pray for you all.
I remember Mrs Reddish from school. Who doesn’t? She was a sweet, beautiful Lady. I was class of 1968.
I know you will miss her deeply.
Pray for God’s amazing grace and comfort during your time of sorrow.
