Aunt Jean, You will always live in our hearts and minds. To Bev, Kathy, Vickie, Brenda and Amy, Uncle Jerry, Uncle Larry, Uncle Dick, Aunt Annie and Aunt Sandy. Know my Heartfelt prayers and thoughts are with you all. It is a bitter sweet time for you all but to know she is spending Christmas and all Eternity in Heaven with Jesus, Her Husband, Son and Brothers and Sisters as well as her Mom & Dad I can can only feel Love and Peace that she so deserves. Eighty Eight (88) years on earth is awesome. She suffered a lot since Jamie (Sam) died but you girls made sure each moment was special and she knew she was loved by all her family and friends. Aunt Jean always had a smile on her face. She always gave you a feeling of comfort when ever you would see her because the smile she gave me, anyway, told me that everything was going to be all right. Even @ the reunions when you knew part of her was hurting, she would still smile and say hello. She will always be missed and loved but you will have many precious memories to be in your hearts and minds forever. She is now at total happiness and peace and will be watching you from Heaven. I'm sorry, I don't believe I will be able to make it up for the funeral. Also, know that I Love You all and missed seeing everyone this past year. May God's Abundant Blessings and Graces Be with You All, Always.

Love, Rita A. Ruth-Bacik
