So sorry to read about Jean. She was our neighbour and I so admired her tenacity after losing Calvin so young. Later years - Smith's are just around town. My condolences to all of her best - her family./ Mark

From the first time I seen Jean's soft smile, it tugged at my heart strings. She quickly took root in my heart, more and more i needed to see that smile and she delivered, her stories were always a pleasure. The sparkle in her eyes when she spoke of her family. It was hard to walk away when you seen that combination. She took with her a lot of memories, and left many behind, take comfort in that at this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Raquel Sousa
