Jill, Craig, and Curt -
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. I knew your mother as a smiling “lunch lady,” a whispering library aide, and a loving mother to the three of you. She was a lovely lady who will be missed but not forgotten.

I would like to express my deepest sympathies. I enjoyed the few years that I took care of Jean at the Manor. I can remember walking her for therapy even when she wasn't in the mood she would still go for a walk with me and would give it her all. She will be deeply missed.
