Once again, you would have been proud of your mother tonight. She was
honored as the Woman of Distinction for her professional accomplishments,
her unwavering grace and spirit, and her courage. She named you as making
the greatest impact on her life.
Mikki Hoeven, First Lady of ND, spoke at the banquet and told me that
Jenette's speech in Bismarck on September 11, 2002, made a lasting impression
on her and many others. You continue to touch our lives daily and in so
many positive ways. Thank you for being part of our lives for 30 years
and for continuing to bless us with your spiritual presence.
You will always be loved and very much alive in our hearts and memories.
