When I was in the 9th grade, my family moved to Okeene, Oklahoma for about 6 months.  I remember Jeannie writing me letters all the time keeping me up-to-date on the happenings in Norman.  I treasured those letters! Miss you Jeannie.  Carolyn Heck Bechtold

Richard and I dropped in on Jeannie and Keith during a camping trip at Grand Lake. They were fostering a bob cat that helped itself to the ground beef thawing on the counter. I remember her taking it all in stride and explaining that you can't take meat away from a wild animal. We laughed about never dreaming about having such a conversation when we were in high school.
