We are never prepared for the departure of a loved one and at this most difficult time it is gratifying to know that relatives and friends share our sorrow and have shown in so many ways that they care. Your acts of kindness and expressions of sympathy have been a tower of strength for us. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida for the wonderful care they provided our Mom. Other local charities Jean supported included the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center and the Jacksonville Humane Society.
