    We are saddened by the passsing of Jean Smith. She was a very gracious hostess to us on several occasions when we accompanied her niece to visit her over the past decade. I will always remember her beautiful African violet plants and the many wonderful sea life placques on display in her home which were done by her late husband Newt. She was always great to converse with and her departing this world is a great loss of a very nice woman. We hope her family will take comfort now in the realization that she is in the presence of the Lord.

    It is with a sad and heavy heart that we must say good-bye to this lovely, fun Aunt. We have wonderful memories of spending great times, conversations and laughter with her! Years ago, she had given me The Sweet Adelienes and Whalers cookbooks. Every holiday, I take them out and decide which recipes I would use. I will cherish this cookbooks, now more than ever! To my cousins and thier families, please accept our deepest sympathy. Our love and prayers go out to all of you during this very sad time.

    How much we will miss our Aunt Jeanne! She was a warm and loving Aunt. Never judgmental, always words of encouragement no matter what. All those great meals!!!!! What fun we always had in her home. Nothing was to much for her. If you just stopped in for a minute, or spent a few days with her, she always had time for us. I will miss all our conversations about Brooklyn. Aunt Jeanne knew more about Brooklyn than I did. I will think about you everyday, Aunt Jeanne. You will never be far from our thoughts. Too my cousins, there are no words to describe how she will be missed.
    Love, hugs and prayers
    John and Patti
