Tari-
So sorry to hear the passing of your mother. Hearts and prayers go out to you and your family

From Tari...

Thank you so much for all of your fond memories and thoughtful condolences for mom. We appreciate you! Tari, Jeff and Amy.

From Sue Scott...

Jean was a dear friend and I am so missing her love and her great wisdom. One skill that I cherished was her ability to listen and very wisely help me through a “tough patch”. We had many fun times together and both broke down laughing when we remembered my GPS saying “recalculating” every time we got confused/lost! I hope her calm soothing voice and meaningful words will remain strong in my head and her friendship will continue to beat in my heart forever. Love ya,

From Judy Wedermyer...
