Awww…sweet Jean! My first “other mother” neighbor, friend. You made a difference in my life. I’m so grateful for Connie, who you birthed and raised to be my very first friend. Rest In Peace, lovely woman. Thinking of Connie, Marcia and Scott so often since I heard the news. I wish I could be with you on Monday. In spirit, I will be. Love Jen
