Dear Cousins,

We both send our deepest condolences to you all.  Aunt Jean was the best of the best.  As a young kid, I can remember all the fun we had together weather in Coatesville, Honeybrook, or Hollidaysburg.  When we laughed, the laughing never stoped.  I will always remember how Aunt Jean included me in many of your family celebrations as if I was one of her own.  I thank God that she was my Aunt and Sammy has also considered her his Aunt also.  I know now that she is at peace and resting by Uncle Merrill.

Love to you all,

Bill and Sammy
