My Aunt Jean was the best Aunt EVER! Her and Uncle Bill came out to visit us in Oregon 1998, and we went to the Oregon coast. I got to share the Pacific Ocean, which was her first time to see the ocean, A lifetime dream of her’s! The joy and excitement in her sparkling blue eyes, as we held hands and walked barefoot on the Beach, was a cherished time we shared!
Her love of nature and her family were a glowing beacon of warmth. Her laugh and humor were crazy fun and next to none,
Love and miss you Mom,
Steven A Sample
