  4. I just heard about my cousin Jean’s passing this e ening. Jean was a warm and giving g person. I just was talking to my 15 year old daughter Emmy yesterday about Jean. Jean always remembered to mail out a birthday card ( rare these days)/ She never forgot anyone and every card she sent she out 5$ was sent as a gift. I told Em.y be like Jean thoughtful from the heart. I remember her mother Nancy exuding the same thoughtfulness that Jean carried with her in her heart regardless of the ups and downs in her life.
    Many have passed in our family and now Jean you get to see them with their arms open wide. The angels are im sure are there as well.
    God bless you.
