Dave and family. Words can't express how sorry to hear of Jean's passing. It just doesn't seem possible. She was like a sister to me for many years, especially our many years together at Ricoh. She will be missed by many.

My heartfelt condolences go out to the family at this very difficult time. I cannot express the sadness I'm feeling right now and how much she will be missed. I will always cherish the memories I shared with Jean and the family. We had many wonderful times together. Jean was such a beautiful person, both inside and out, and the kindest, warmest, sweetest person I've ever known. She always made you feel on top of the world. If you hadn't seen her for a while, when you did, it was like you saw her yesterday. Remember the happy times and that beautiful smile. My love and prayers are with you all.
Love & Hugs, Aunt Karen xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
