    Dear Carol, My heart breaks for your loss. I know Jean appreciated everything you did for her and loved you deeply. Who couldn’t? Continue to draw your strenghth from those around you and remember happier times. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this very sad time.

    Jeanne, The journey has been long, the struggle so hard yet you never gave up the will to fight and go on living. Past months have found you getting tired and weary, but I never thought things would turn and you would go so fast. My consolation was seeing your face tranquil and peaceful, without pain at long last. You are gone now and life will change. My only wish on earth was to give you one more day to walk amongst us and share again life’s pleasures. This would have taken a miracle. In my heart, I know you are walking with God and probably raising hell with the Angels. Jean, through our difficult times, I hope you know I loved you and through your living, if nothing else, you have given me the greatest of gifts- to appreciate each moment in every way, followed by compassion, understanding, the ability to embrace and be embraced by so many people who have touched both of our lives, and most of all love. You were one courageous lady and a hell of a woman! (Hey, go scratch your own nose!) Always in my heart, Your Sister, Carol
