Jane,

I was so sorry to hear about your mother's passing.
(Jean) We always called our parents by their first
names growing up. How fun! And your parents were like second parents to me! She was so nice to everyone. She had a heart of gold!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

In the 1950's, mother and Jean took us (ages 4,5,6,7,8) to Lake Aquabi and Avon Lake. Before I (we) could swim, I got into water that was deep enough, so that I could only breath by bobbing up and down. I was terrified, and I mean that. I vividly remember her face as she pulled me back into safe water. That sounds ho-hum. Believe me, it was, to me, a life saver.

Jean always treated us as older than our ages. I appreciated that.

Jean was always reading a book. I have no idea what she read. However, one could always tell from her speech that she was well read, though she was still down to earth.

She had an infectious laugh and sense of humor. I would start to laugh even before she she told her funny stories. The smile in her photo is representative.

My condolences. Jack Hearn
