My beloved Aunt Jean, I have so many wonderful memories of you. I remember you telling my Mom: "Belle, swing that arm" (before we knew Mama had Parkinson's). I remember your laugh, your sassiness, the look you got when you were mad (look out everyone), and the unconditional love you had for your family. I remember you comforting Paul Jay when the doves he shot couldn't be cooked. I remember you teaching 3 year old Dustin the song, Zachias (was a wee little man). You had the greatest sense of style! I have a vivid memory of you in a denim skirt and blouse (blouse had lots of bling), a big sparkly belt, silver earrings and oodles of bracelets. You looked smashing!!!! Roxanne said to be sure and mention your wonderful style and bling. But none of the bling or sparkles you wore could ever compete with your inner sparkle!!! You are so loved and always will be. Don't cause too much mischief on that heavenly plain (but a little is ok )

I sat and cried when I heard Aunt Jean had died. It was not unexpected, but an anticipated loss is not the same as the actual loss. And this was a loss for all who knew and loved her. I cried for her, for me and for our entire family. She was the last of my mother's four sisters. The last of that generation. She was our link to our grandparents, our family historian, devout Christian, great story-teller, avid Michael Strahan fan, gifted quilter, encourager, talented cook, snazzy dresser, empathetic listener, and caring person, truly beloved by all. Every time I see a little "Bling" I will think of Aunt Jean. My heart goes out to Pam, Trent, Neil and Leigh, and to all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren, your loss is immense. With love, hugs and prayers, Mary
