Mary Catherine and Becky
I can't tell you how sorry I am to learn of your mother Jeans' passing. I know I was there as your Dads caretaker, but Jean always made me feel like I was one of her friends. I really enjoyed and admired her spirit, the social butterfly persona that was always ready to go do something, see somebody, be in the middle of the action. And I've a feeling that leaving this earthly body behind, with all its aches and pains, has given her a whole new world of wonders to explore and enjoy.

Janet Stine
