George and I, on behalf of our family, send our love and sympathy to your family. I have many, many fond memories of Aunt Jean and the fun she and her siblings had together at family gatherings. A joy and zest for living radiated from her, even during her final years here on earth. Our loss is heaven's gain. She will be greatly missed. Much love to Bill and all of my cousins! May God grant you His peace and comfort.
