To first and foremost a wonderful friend and second mother to me. From the day I met her until she ended her journey here, Jean always saw the good in all and found a way to brighten your life in any situation,always thinking of others. We will miss her dearly but know she is with many friends and family running on the beach in a beautiful place while still keeping an eye on all of us! We love you very much and will always keep you in our hearts and talk to you often. Love always Jayne
