We are very sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was a wonderful person, kind and generous. We have many fond memories of our time in New Jersey with your parents. They were our “home away from home”. First at the house with the pool party and later at the farm. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Jean was such a joy to talk to, so full of energy and smart. I enjoyed talking to her about her family who she loved, her home, and family history. She is such a wonderful woman. I know that she will be so very happy to be with Carmen again, and know that my mom, Pat, will love to catch up on things with her too.
