The Young family shares our sincere condolences. We are saddened to learn of Jeans passing. She gave our 15-year-old son, Andrew, permission to fish her pondwhich he appreciated and enjoyed tremendously. All of us liked talking with Jean when we dropped off or picked up Andrew from his fishing excursion. She was interesting, kind and complimentary of our son. We are grateful that she trusted him and for the opportunity to have known her. If there is anything we can do to help please contact me at 484-894-1170.
