    As Jean’s spirit peacefully sailed away into the clouds toward her new home, we will always have our memories of her and of Bill. I am glad she liked tuna noodle casserole and her beautiful home on the golf course. You, Donna, Todd and family have done all you can for Jean and you are a blessing to us as well. Jean taught us about loving and caring. We will be welcomed, just as she has been welcomed by all who have gone before. In that great gettin’ up morning, we will all realize a much deeper love than we have ever known here. Peace and love to Jean’s family.
