Dave, Brandon, Rex and Teresa, our sympathy and prayers to all of you. Jean was one of the happiest people that I know and she always lifted everyone's spirits when she was around. Jean was more than the life of the party, she was the light of us all.

I was a classmate of Jeans' and would like to express my sorrow to your family . She was always so cheerful and concerned for the well being of everyone around her. When I was on Hall Patrol at Delone she use to hit me going by just to be a pick. Just one memory from some time ago. She will be missed.
