Not sure what to say?

I was so sorry when Jean passed. I first met her on the train to Boston several years ago.

Auntie Ann, cousins Nancy, Steve JoAnn and family.... we are so very sorry to hear about Jean's passing. She was the sweetest, kindest person and always interested and smiling. We have lost an amazing person.... and so very sad for you all. my dad sends his condolences as well along with our hugs and prayers... we will keep an eye out for her memorial. xoxoxo

So sorry to learn of the passing of Jean. I met her years ago through a mutual deafblind friend. What a lovely soul. My condolences to her mother and family.

Jean helped so many people throughout her life. My thoughts and prayers are with Ann and all of the Healy family.

Jean was my good friend for almost 40 years, and I am so sorry that she is no longer with us. At the Spfld. Mayor’s Office for Handicapped Affairs we worked together with a shared sense of mission, and had a lot of fun along the way. I will miss her greatly.

Our deepest sympathy on the death of Jean.We remember Jean so fondly . So proud of her accomplishments in life. Sincerely,Mike and Barbara Ashe

Dear Ann and family ,It's been many years ago but I remember how sweet and strong Jean was ! May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Phyllis Murphy

I worked closely with Jean when she was the director of DBCC on DeafBlind issues and was friends with her for years. The DeafBlind community has lost an advocate and a friend. My condolences to her friends and family.

Dear Ann:
Although we did not know Jean personally, it is obvious from the words of her obituary that she was a unique, loving, giving person. May that memory of her provide you with the strength to endure the days to come. Our prayers are with you and your family.
Sincerely, Bill and Pat Fitzgerald.
