To my cousins, my sympathies. I hope that your faith will bring you and your families the comfort and peace you seek at this difficult time. Aunt Jean was a wonderful aunt and godmother. She always exuded peace and happiness when greeting her. As I got to know her over the last few years I would say wisdom was also one of her many attributes. God's Peace, Susan

Aunt Jean was such a great person. She was always fun to be around and brought joy with her wherever she went. She was very kind to me and all of her family. She will be missed by all who knew her. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of our family who loved her.

Jeannie was something special and we'll always be grateful that she was in our lives. She was always the belle of the ball and made everyone in the room smile with her infectious smile.
