Dear friends, you have all been very special in my life thru the years. Jean had a great personality that made you happy just to be around her. I’m sure you will miss her but she lived a long & happy life blessed by her children & grandchildren. If I don’t make it to be with you on Monday it’s because I have limited mobility but I send my love & hugs. May God Bless you! Sincerely, Rexine
