We send our deepest sympathy Brian to you and your family.
Our reconnection with Brian and Frances, of a year now, has been very special.
Your mom’s photo memories have her smiling face in almost every frame! I could tell she really loved her life and her family.
Much love and peace,

Dear Grandma
I was really happy to see you.
I really wish I could meet you again, but please forgive me that I wasn't able to come and see you before the angels take you to heaven.
And no matter what, I am always thinking of you like my grandma in Canada.
My prayers go out to you.
Rest In Peace.
Love you forever.

Seina.

Dear Brian, Linda, and the rest of your beautiful family,
I am so sorry to learn of Aunt Jean’s passing. I enjoyed her humor and her enthusiasm about life when we talked by phone. Our meeting with both your parents in Nokomis and at the family reunion are two of my cherished memories. I know your mother was instrumental in getting us together. In reading through some of the other memories about Jean, I see she cast a broad net. There are friends of Harv and Jean, Jean’s work friends, Linda’s best friend...I didn’t know she was an artist! She was very kind to me and I will greatly miss her. I send my warmest sympathy to you and your family.

Marion and I will remember Jeannie always for her quiet strength and good humor. She was a dear friend that you could rely on to be there whenever you needed her, in good times and bad. It was a privilege to have her and Harv as our closest friends and we miss them dearly.

Linda and Brian

I am so sorry to hear about your mother. She was such a lovely person. I feel blessed just to have known her. We had many long talks over the years. Know that she is at peace with your father now and one day you will see them again.
May she rest in peace

We have been blessed over the years with many wonderful friends. And back in 1998 we met Harv and Jean Cooney. Harv passed several years ago and our treasured friendship with Jean continued. There is a huge void in our lives with the loss of these 2 dear people. Rest In Peace. Our lives are better because you were a part of them. Love Bud & Lu

Dear Linda, Brian and family:
So sad to hear about Jean. She was a lovely woman and such a great neighbor. It is a very sad day on Tatra Drive.

Jean was a caring, compassionate nurse and was a mentor to me in my early years on 2F, and someone I considered a friend in later years. She will be sadly missed and my condolences go to Linda and the rest of her family.
