  • Dear Jack, Mike and Anne,
    I’m so sorry to hear that Jean passed. I’m thankful we were able to reconnect a couple of years ago and she shared my love of family history. I’ll cherish the conversations we had. She was a wonderful person and will be missed.

  • My condolences to Jack, Mike and the rest of your family. I remember Jean as a fine lady, totally devoted to her family. We had many talks and visits during the kid’s music lessons. My last recollection of Jean was the two of us crying together in the Quincy High band room. She came to tell me of Joe’s passing. Again my sincere condolences. Dick
