Even though I had not seen Jean for years, she was often in my thoughts and always in my heart. Heartfelt sympathy for Dave and family. Rest in peace
Jean, - till we meet again. 💕

Rob and I are sad that we are not able to meet with family as we remember Jean. She and Mom were so close, not just as sisters, but also as great friends. It is comforting to know she is now with those who have gone before her. Sending thoughts and prayers to her family.
