  1. Julie and family – I worked with Jean at Memorial E.R. several years ago and remember her with fondness. She was a very kind individual,always willing to lend a helping hand, or chat a little. I know she will be missed by many people. I was grateful to know her.

  2. you raised me when i was 2 i remember the day before you died i told you i was going to get u a pepsi then when i got there i ask if you were feeling better and you tried to talk i told you to write on a peice of paper and you did i asked if you wanted a pepsi and you said yes i was going to get you krispy creams donut from walmart it was going to be glazed and every time i came to cut the grass you said thank you and it was nice i will never forget you i will have you in my heart every day i thank god that your in a better place and you no longer have to suffer with that stupid disease i love you and i will see you soon

  3. To Julie and Family: It was so nice to see Aunt Jean at the last family reunion. We never got to see each other much after I moved away from home but when we were in the same places together it was always fun and had good talks. I will miss her a lot. I love you Aunt Jean.

  4. To Julie and family: I’m sorry our families did not get a chance to see each other over the past few years. One of the last memories I have of Aunt Jean is when we went to Uncle Al’s funeral and spent the night in the same hotel room. My daughter Katie was with us and we had a wonderful time getting reacquainted. We will all miss her very much. All our love and prayers to you and your family.

  5. Bobbie, My deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother. No one can ever take the place of a mother! Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
