    Thoughts and prayers to /for all of you, in the loss of your Mother.
    I treated your Mother many times while working in Rugby, in the PT Dept.
    She came to me as we were setting up the new dept, in 1974-She was fun, and very knowledge-able and could talk about so many things, and alway wanted to know bout things she was not familiar with. We could always get a chuckle out.
    Blessings to all of you.

    Our thoughts and prayer are with you at this time.

    Jean was not only a relative of my Dad’s but a member of our family. She stayed with us when she taught in the Fairville
    school. My mom and Jean had lots of fun.
    She always remembered my folks on their birthdays with a card or phone call.

    I remember the rest of the Lies kyds through church and 4-H etc. I’ll never forget the big patch of poppies that your
    you had in your yard.
