Dear George and Family;

My deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to you during this time of great loss. Jean was such a wonderful part of my life that holds many many dear memories I will cherish forever. She was such a joy and delight and always had a smile on her face. We spent many hours at Elder Beermans working and laughing and eating food. I truly loved her and will miss her.

Special Thoughts and God Bless!
