My brothers Frank. Phillip & I didn’t see Aunt Jean as much as we would have liked, but we do remember her humour, her easy laugh and her strong sense of right from wrong.

We can only imagine how you must be feeling right now but as a strong family who at this sad time will need each other, given time the sadness with fade and you’ll remember your mum how she once was.

Fondest love Elaine, Frank & Phillip

I fondly remember the visits that Aunt Jean made to Scotland. We loved seeing you here. I always wanted to come see you in Canada and thankfully we got the opportunity to visit you last year in your lovely home., myself, Mum, Hannah & Caitlin. It was so lovely to see you in Canada and stay with you, Uncle Alex, Lorraine and Annie. We all have some great memories from our visit that we will treasure. God Bless and Rest In Peace Aunt Jean. Love Carol-Anne, Daniel, Hannah & Caitlin xx

Lorraine and family. We are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. We didn't get to meet your mom but based on what I've seen and know about you, she obviously did something right. We can't imagine for the loss you're experiencing at this time. Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever and remember a mom's hug lasts long after she lets go.

Love Monica, Paul and Laurie
