Jean was one of my clients for over 20 years. Her laughter and love of life filled the salon. She was always happy and making us all laugh. My thoughts and prayers go out to Junior, Kim and Tony. She loved her family so much. She will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know her. I will continue to pray for peace and comfort during this very difficult time.

It hasn't been the same without her sweet smile for a while now. She was one of the kindest, most sincere people with an infectious personality and smile. Always ready with a hug and an encouraging word. I know she is once again whole and looking down with that special love for her family, who always came first. Our most sincere condolences.
