    Hello, Tom and family. I enjoyed the video of your mom and family. You really did a nice job.
    I remember her as one of the moms that spent time at St. Mary’s when we were in school there. A very special woman. God bless.

    I worked at St. John’s with Jean. One of the great mentors in my nursing career. I had wondered about her these last few years and am sorry I didn’t know where she was. She was a good friend and confidant. She has been greatly missed and always will be. My sincere sympathy to Jean’s family. She was a great lady……
