    Sorry to hear about the passing of Jean. I have great memories of time spent with you and Jean in Mill Rise. Odd thing, Mike Boyes of Airdrie Automotive and I were talking about you last Wednesday. I was telling him how Jean had a knack for making everyone feel at home. Regret that I will not be able to attend service but know my thoughts are with you and your family.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of Jean. I remember fun times at your home in Calgary and of the fear of Jean should Danny and I get into trouble. But seriously she always made me feel very welcomed in your home. I am very sorry for your loss.
