Oh Momma, I already miss you, but that's to be expected. I was/am honored to have been able to care for you, and the things we taught each other. You finally got it right with cribbage and kept beating me. Your sense of humor could be pretty wicked and I loved it. Never will forget your "crocodile" voice. You were happy, upbeat, dearly loved all of your family. Hopefully we can make you proud by us keeping jn touch. I love so many things about you, and still at night jump when the phone rings, thinking you're calling to say good night. Not goodbye momma, but see you soon.

Always a warm smile to give. Never a harsh word spoken. What a gentle lady I was very blessed to know. She never passed judgement and did her best to stay in touch no matter how far away we were. My boys were blessed to have a Grandmother so dear. You will truly be missed beautiful lady. Thoughts and Prayers.

Dear Family, Aunt Jean will always have a very special place in my heart. She always made me feel important to her. She was a great listenener; and could make me laugh and forget my troubles for awhile. And she could give really good hugs! My favorite times were when we would take all those trips to visit my Mom's sister and her kids! (Except maybe that time in Benson when we had to watch the chicken get prepared for dinner!). And all those holiday and special family get-togethers where us cousins would have a blast! Sometimes we would even get to play cards with the adults, AND sometimes NOT!!! Remember Canasta, Pinochle and 500?!!! When I first moved back to Mn in '94; I got to spend a couple of weeks, by myself with Aunt Jean and Grandma Eileen at Golden Meadows! Coffee every morning, cards in the afternoon with the ladies in the community room and nights at Bingo! Lots of quality visits and good eating too! One of the best times of my life!!! I will miss Jean's soft heart, her sweet crooked smile and all those hugs! But since we have the same hope in Jesus Christ; I am looking forward to the blessing of spending eternity with her and our precious Savior. Until then Auntie, I love you! Your niece, Cathy.
