Condolences

So sorry for your loss. I have heard lots of stories about how determined Jean was over the years and never let a health issue get in her way of getting things done. She is no longer in pain and can celebrate in heaven now. Prayers to your entire family.

I worked with Jean at Regal Ware. She was a joy to be around. So sorry for your loss.
