I was sadden to read of the passing of Jean today in the Medicine Hat News. Jean was a caring and loving individual. Always had a kind word and very out-going. She had a smile and positive outlook always. She and Reiny had good years together and it was wonderful that they found love late in life. I pray your family will be blessed with many happy memories of lady who lived life well.
