We never got to spend as much time with you, Aunt Jean, as we would have liked to because of living so far apart, but phone calls to talk were always at least an hour or more and you always made me laugh and could give great advice on so many subjects. I loved to just hear your voice. Phil loved to eat your cooking! You will be missed. Love to all.
