My only wish is to grow into half the woman that you are. I love you forever Grammy. I promise to strive to make you proud with everything I do. You will never be forgotten and one day when your great grand babies are here they will know and love you even though you are no longer with us. I miss you so much already, beautiful. I love you a bushel and a peck, Arianna Marie

Rest Well, my friend. You will be missed by everyone. But if I know you, you are organizing some sort of shenanigans, or telling them the common sense way to do things in Heaven. You will always be a guiding star! Blessed Be.

I was a lucky kid growing up on Lincoln road surrounded by family and I could always count on my Aunt Jean to glue me back together with some spectrocin ointment when I got hurt, usually doing something dumb! Rest in peace and tell PoP and everyone hey for me!

Hard to believe that we are at an age where we have to think about living with out a mother. I am so sorry that you now have to. I remember seems like forever ago to a time where I called her mom as well. She was like that! Welcoming and loving that The only name to call her was Mom, it just seemed to fit. So sorry.

Donna, I'm so sorry for your loss! Your mom was like my second mom when we were younger & she was always at the house when the ambulance was called for different reasons. She was always kind to me & my family when things happened, she did her job with her heart on her sleeve! There's so many things I remember about her & they are all great memories. If there is anything I can do please feel free to contact me! She is with the angels having a good time & probably helping anyone who needs it! She will always be in my heart!

Jean was my cousin. Since I was a toddler, I remember staying in the big house, I always thought she was the best. Later years I enjoyed our talks at Cowtown. So sorry for your loss. ....................Monnie Cliver Joslin.............
