    I remember going to you parents house after school a few times. Your Mom was always made me feel very welcome. Sending condolences I would like to pay my respects in person but we no longer live in Ohio.

    Was so sorry to hear about Jean's passing. We had many good times together as old military friends from the Air Force. Jean & I kept in contact over the years since I live in NY and I'll miss hearing from her. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sam and her whole family. Sincerely, Jacqueline Pine & daughters Sharon Harris & Kim Fullmer
