  10. I will remember Jean as always being so warm and friendly towards Linda and I. She spoke to me from the heart at my wife Linda’s funeral on Dec. 8. We would see her and Ken on their visits to Heather and Jamie’s and our mutual grandchildren. They drove long distances to take part in Birthdays , Christmases and activities by their grandchildren like skating carnivals. I know her children and her grandchildren will feel a huge loss. I also believe she is safe and happy with our Lord in heaven in the company of family and friends who have gone before. To Ken , I feel your loss. Jim Hamill
