There are no words to describe my love for Aunt Jean. She was the epitome of love and kindness. I’m so very proud to share her name. I’ll always show love to those close to me, to honor Jean’s name.

I will dearly miss Aunt Jean. She always treated me like one of the family! She was the epitome of a lady. I loved going to her house as a child. She introduced me to Arlene, daddy's first wife. My heart is broken. Aunt Jean is in heaven, with a new body; no longer in pain. Rest in peace, Aunt Jean. I love you always.

Aunt Jean's passing has left a huge hole in my heart. She never forgot a birthday or anniversary. I have a large collection of cards, notes and letters from her all filled with love. Loved taking her out for lunch and trips to Dairy Queen along with Aunt Lucy. My heart is filled with wonderful memories. I will remember her always with love.
