We have been thinking of all of you during this time. We often think of all the good times our children had playing in the pasture across the street from our house during the late '50's and early 60's and the good times at the Waterloo bank concerts and Rex's. Wonderful years spent in Waterloo.

I had the pleasure of staying with Jean for around 5 years when first start staying with her we had many talks she helped me as much as I helped her. I got to know her well sweetest lady ever really never said anything bad about anyone she could always make me laugh even if we both were having a bad day. She has a beautiful soul and am a better person from knowing her rest in peace heaven truly has another angel. Love Ginger
