Dear Aunt Jeanie, I wished all these years our family could have stayed together. You were our family. We have always thought of all of you. I wish my dad could have seen his sisters you and Aunt Evelyn. He is very sad right now that the family drifted. This whole thing is sad. We will always have you in our hearts. We looked at past Christmas Eve pictures and cried. You will always be my dad's sister and my Aunt. We have missed all of you. It hurts. Things should have never been like this. My dad should have had a relationship with his sisters. He always missed both of you, more than anyone could know. I have pictures in his room of his family. All these years he would cry, especially after my mom died. Aunt jeanie, always know he Carries both you and Aunt Evelyn in his heart, as well as I do. Aunt Jeannie you are with us, looking at your pictures you and my dad looked exactly alike. You are and always will be in our hearts forever. Rest in peace Aunt Jeanie. Love you and Aunt Evelyn always. George and Barbara

Jean,

I will always remember our times together, walking the boardwalk together in Wildwood when I was a child, walking the rocks in Rockport MA, spending all our Holidays together with all the family,
& speaking with you on your last day at the Chelsea and on this earth. Your strength and knowledge was amazing. I will miss you. I'm sure Dave is glad to have you by his side for Memorial Day.
Love always and forever,
Steven
