Very sorry to hear of the passing my thought and prayers with all of you 

Jean's brother Ed was one of my best friends. I miss him to this very day. I met Jean through Ed.  Jean was always a good at heart. We shared so many fun times, when she lived on Shady Shores Drive and especially when she lived on Snyder Road. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. A GREAT PERSON, A GREAT LOSS!! My deepest condolences to the entire family.

So sorry for your loss fritz

Jodi, Beth and Marie my heart breaks for you. Holding you in my thoughts and wishing you moment's of peace.

Gone too soon...Godspeed, Chester
