To the entire Casey Family,

I have just returned from the beautiful funeral Mass for your beloved Jeannie. Actually I left there so inspired that I wanted to write you all this message. As some of you know I went to school with Jeannie. Class of 1969! When we were in high school I remember Jeannie as being quiet, reserved, and some would say shy. But when she I would talked I found a very different person. She was strong, intelligent, clever, and funny. I remember so well that when we would talk and laugh her entire face would light up the room. My mother use to call this " Irish Eyes". As time passed we would see each other and I remember thinking wow....she has grown to be such a powerful, smart, successful women. More beautiful then ever and more in love with life. Certainly more in love with her family and Son. As I waited on line during the viewing watching intently all the photo's of Jeannie (thank you Danielle) and watched her life pass before us I thought....there it was... that beautiful, beautiful, smile. She lights up a room - oh those "irish Eyes". I knew then why. Her face was the expression of what was inside her. Nothing but care, love and beauty.

To the iconic "Casey Family". You are all a role model of what a family is and should be. You are full of grace, love, and dignity. That came shining through these last two days. Your recognition of Jeannie was a testament of your love for her and most important a demonstration of your love for each other.

Brett, although I don't know you, you did yourself and your mother proud.

I know your journey without Jeannie will be hard. I have faith in your collective love and wisdom. I have even more faith in the legacy Jeannie has left you.

God has blessed each and everyone one of you.

Fairwell those "Irish Eyes"!
