    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Jean was a very special person who always had a smile and kind word for everyone. We offen drive by the farmsteads and talk about when the Rheaults and Sauvageaus were neighbors.

    Jean Rheault was like one of our family when I was growing up. Mom would say that they were sisters. I have prayed concerning Jean and a couple weeks later I ran into her at the hospital. It was the most awesome thing to see her. Love you Jean. Give my Mom and Dad a hug around the neck for me.
