To the family of Ms. Jean please accept my heartfelt condolences. The pain of losing a love one to death can be unbearable, but take comfort in knowing that our loving creator "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted, and he saves those crushed in spirit." At this difficult time draw close to God in prayer because He cares for you. (Psalms 34:18 ; James 4:8)

Dear Jean, we only met once but that was enough to form a friendship. I imagine the conversations we would have had if we had had a lifetime to chat. Your family will miss you but the beautiful memories you have given them will last forever. Goodbye lovely lady, from Carolyn and Bruce in New Zealand.
