I am so sad for the loss of Jean as she was a warm and loving woman. You two were wonderful together and I know how happy she was to have you in her life. I am thankful that you both were able to enjoy the last few years together. Your dedication and support of Jean was the most beautiful gift of all. Thank you for being such a wonderful husband to Jean. Now I pray that God will give you strength during this very difficult time.
