Jean was a beautiful lady inside and out. I feel happy to have known her. We were not close friends but whenever I saw her she always made me feel like I was her best friend, she just had that way about her. I am sure she will be greatly missed.

I always enjoyed when Colleen and I stopped in to visit your mom. She was a tough lady. You could not help buy admire and respect her. She was a very intelligent person and was willing to discuss any subject and ready to defend her opinions. Her love for all animals showed her soft side as well as the love for her family.
