I am so sorry for your loss. 

Jean took such great care of me during my time in Inwood.  She was my other mom.  She made sure I was employed, educated, happy and loved. She taught me how to be an open, loving, and available for my kids.  I used many of the lessons she taught me to raise my 2 boys. 

Jean, I have carried you in my heart for the last 33 years.  Thank you for all you did for me.
