Dallas, John and I are so sorry for your loss. Your mother sounds like she was really special. Sorry we didn’t know her. Take our condolences and know we are thinking of you.
Lynne and John
Dana, very saddened to hear of your loss. Only a good and very forgiving Mother could have put up with her teen age boy and his buddies fumbling around the house like we did. Fond memories are worth more than gold. My condolences to you and your family.
Dana, Sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. You and your family have my deepest sympathy .
Jean was a caring person. I knew her as a grandmother who did all she could to help her granddaughters when their lives were in turmoil. She also made us the best ever tin of Christmas cookies every year!! I will remember the good times shared with the family. Condolences to the family. God Bless.
I had a lot of fun talking with Jean once in a while, listening to some tales about her kids. I’m glad I got the chance to get to know her as a person rather than as another face in the hallway. I learned early on not to disturb her while she was playing cards. She was always straight up about what she thought of someone or something. From all I could see Her outlook was open and honest. Jean, I’m gonna miss ya, but I know I’ll be seeing you again. Ed.
