To All of the Family:
The last time I saw Jean I carried her a big container of daffodils....she
just loved them. I had been planning to come see her after Christmas ..I hope she received my card...I tried to send cards to her on a more consistent basis. ----She is with the Lord now and all of the wonderful relatives and friends and not suffering..at peace. I am just sorry I did not go see her sooner. A.T. and I are keeping you in our thoughts and uplifting you all in prayer.
Love,
A.T. and Judy (Cousin!)
