Not sure what to say?

Jean lived across the Division street from me when I was growing up. She was my friend, cheerleader & confidant. She would come over every morning for coffee. I could hear Jean's laugh all the way across the street, all the time. It was a fantastic sound. I remember her greeting me daily, she'd say "hey bayba" in her special Jean way. She was one of the best, they don't make them like you anymore, Jean!! Love you, Shannon

Our thoughts are with all of you during this time of grief. Jean was always such a big part of your lives and we will miss seeing her by your side. It's a good thing there are so many great Jean stories to keep her memory alive.

Dear sweet, kind, hysterically funny Jeanie-though we have not been in touch in recent years, you have always had a special place in mine and my family's hearts. We had so much fun on our outings and just hanging out at my apartment. You always made us laugh, either with your quick humor or your contagious laughter. You were truly a one of a kind gal! Rest in peace, Friend.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
