From Betty & Larry Daly's elder son Richard in Plattsburgh, NY:
Dear family, Jean was a woman of Faith and her family was everything. While saddened by her passing, I rejoice in knowing her pain is past and her reward is at hand. As you close your survivor circle, let me add a personal note: At my godmother Ruth Billing's funeral, my Mom's cousin Helen Polito, her son Joe and I waited at rear of the church to see how seating would play out. When Jean entered the church and saw us, she came over, swept us up with with a big smile and outstretched arm, saying "Come with me ... YOU are all family!"
God love you, Jean, as the Angels come to greet YOU! I shall donate to 'your' Foundation as suggested. RD
