    I will forever remember Aunt Jean , She was so funny ,I loved playing cards with her , Especially when all of the other aunts played with us. She was forever calling Aunt Lola a cheater. They are
    fond memories that I will cherish forever. Her favorite color was blue. When ever I look at the blue sky I will think of you Aunt Jean. I love you and I will miss your smile and your sense of humor.
    May you rest in peace.
