    To Jean's family,
    I like to leave this little quote as it helped when my mom passed away this year. When a loved one leaves to go on a trip we sadly say, " Goodbye" BUT, on the other end of the trip they are met joyfully with, " Hello and Welcome !!!" I like to think that this is how it is with Aunt Jean as she is welcomed to her true home by her relatives and friends.

    My deepest sympathy, thoughts & prayers go out to the family.
