To the Brandt Family, My wife and I were very saddened in hearing of the passing of Jennetta. Jennetta worked for me at MoDot. She was the best employee I had and she and I became very good friends. Jennetta will be missed by many people, including Raye Ann and myself. She was a good and kind person and talking to her all those years working with me made it clear how much she loved her family. I know she was loved by all. God bless her and her family in this time of sadness. We are proud to be her friend.
