Dear Gregg, So sorry for the loss of your Mom. I really enjoyed the tribute video of your Mom and her very full and happy life. There's so much to be said about the joys of family and small town togetherness and bonding. Take care and cherish her memories forever.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I was looking at your beautiful family pictures and realize that you must've just lost Jean. She and my mom are great friends. Your whole family has been very special to me my whole life. Blessings and prayers heading your way.

i am so sorry to hear about her passing. My mother loved her gang of ladies so much. She always worried about her and my Aunt June, wondering how they were doing. Loved her smile and her great laugh. One strong lady. I am sure she had one fabulous greeting at Heaven's gate!

Aunt Jean was such a sweet and gentle person. She was always smiling and happy to be with everyone. It was special to have Mom so close to her at Swanton Healthcare and everyone there was wonderful and helpful. In earlier days there are so many memories of barbecues and swimming at the pond, and wayback years of softball tournaments and 4th of July celebrations. Sorry I can't be there to celebrate her life. She lived a long and very good one. My sympathies to all of her children and grandchildren, but rejoice that she was a very great mother and you have a great family!
