Dear Uncle Dan, Danny, Michael, Steven, Jimmy, Leo, Peter and Patrick,

I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Jean was the best of the best. There is hardly any childhood memories I have she is not a part of. She was always so kind and cheerful. I still can hear her great laugh. I see her at our kitchen table drinking tea and Uncle Dan and my Dad their Irish Whiskey on St. Patricks day. Aunt Jean will be missed by everyone she touched so many lives. I pray for peace for all of you. I can see them all catching up in heaven and watching over everyone. I miss and love you all. The kids send their thoughts and prayers as well. Love Patti, Christopher and Gabrielle of Chapel Hill, NC.
