I love my "Auntie J" because she is a person of great character who loves her sons and other relatives (like me) unreservedly, even though she knows our faults. In that sense, she is a picture of our Lord Jesus Christ who, despite our failures, loves us so much that he died to atone for our sins, that we might live with Him in eternity!
Note that I use the present tense, because death is not the end for those who trust in the salvation offered by Jesus Christ. I trust that Jean is at home in Heaven now, enjoying the rewards for her life of service here on earth. And we will see her again soon!
