Because Jean and I go way back it is hard to share a single memory because I have so many. Of course, since she moved to Michigan following her marriage the memories of times shared together were limited to visits when she returned to Pennsylvania and although they were short, they were always great. I was privileged to share one last real life memory with her when on a bus trip to Michigan I got to share time with her in Frankenmuth where she and Larry came so we could have the visit. It was so wonderful and especially now I am so grateful to have had. She was a great friend, my best, and we shared so much from our school days on, even if most of our adult lives had to be shared through letters and eventually emails.
Rest in peace my friend. You will always be in my heart and memories.
