I have no words to express how much we will miss your dear Mother. She has been a welcome addition and a special part of our lives. Our travels would not have been the same without Jean's companionship with her best friend. She was the chosen sister to Annice and the chosen Aunt to us. We were always welcomed like family and felt the same love for her that she showed us.
We will miss your sweet quirky ways, your sweet smile and your presence in our lives.
You are now at peace with those who have left you on this earth. Hug and dance with your beloved Jack, who I'm sure has been waiting with open arms for you, sweet Jean
