Michele, David, Melynda & family,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. I will remember Aunt Jean with such fond memories of summers spent with her. I will always remember her laughing at me because I was scared of a thunderstorm. She also made the best chocolate pie! I hope she is having a wonderful reunion with family. I hope my Dad was there to greet her into the gates of heaven. All my love, Terri
