There are so many memories I have of Jean I wouldn't know where to begin. She was my friend. She gave so much of herself to me and to everyone she cared about. I love the picture with Jean holding that can of Tab. I've never seen it before, but it captures her beautifully- her sense of humor, her inner and outer beauty and of course her love for that no calorie beverage. I love her. The world is a much poorer place without her.
