    My very deepest love and sympathy to Linda, Nancy, Bill and all the family. Jean was such a kind and interesting person who made me feel welcome the many times I came to the house during my high school years and later. I remember her for many unique touches, like ice cubes from drinks put into potted plants, walking sandwiches, cats, dogs, pigs and more, and meals full of vegetables from her garden. I know she will live on in the loving hearts of her family and friends.

    What a terrific person and what a loss. We were lucky to be able to spend some time with her and we are very happy that she got to know Charlie and Margaret, who carry her name and Peter too.
    She will be missed by all who knew her.
