    Such a calming and beautiful person that will truly be missed, but never forgotten. Rest easy until we meet again on the other side to dance in the clouds.

    Jean you were a kind and gentle soul. We will always treasure the memory of The Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve when you came to visit us. Rest peacefully.

    Aunt Jean, you are at peace, now, and reunited with your parents and your sister. I'll always treasure our trips to Florida with my Mom, Brandon and David and all the years of bringing the boys to the campground. I love you and will miss you.
