I only knew Jean for a brief time. I was a member of her extended family for only a few years, but I never forgotten her or Leo's kindness. They reached to help me when they didn't have to. I only wish I kept in touch over the years. I'm just now learning of their passing, and wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to their family. God Bless You All. Linda Lampe (spangler)
