I would like to extend my sympathy to Jean's loved ones. May these promises from the Bible bring them comfort and support in this time of sorrow. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are discouraged. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalm 34:18; Isaiah 25:8 NWT. Peace be with you.

I have never met you but I do know what a successful mother you were because I know your daughter Angela as a wonderfully compassionate and intelligent individual who embraces life fully and with great zest. So, a life well lived by that measure.
