This is my sweet Grandma Jean. She passed away this morning. The same month, a year after my Grandpa. She meant so much to me and always made me feel so special. I remember going to their house every Christmas. Her gifts were always my favorite to open. Somehow she always knew what was cool at the time and got it for me. She asked a ton of questions, so interested in our lives. She would save every letter I wrote and clip out articles to different countries I would travel to. She didn't have an easy life, but she always made everyone feel so valued and seen. I have so many special memories of her and she will be so missed. I love you dear Grandma Jean!
