Tributes

12/6/2007 - We fondly remember Jean's enthusiasm and vigor when she was able to go on her walks around the Moab neighborhood. We'd be working in our yard, and Jean would walk by and always greet us with excitement and kind words. She had a zest for life, and her memory will live on.... Sending our deepest sympathies, Part-timers- Pat & Jim - Pat and Jim

12/5/2007 - It has been decades but I can still recall the family gatherings in Uniondale, N.Y. I especially remember the enclosed patio with the big brick fireplace and the deer or moose head above it. The many holiday meals where us cousins would put together a variety show of singing and dancing which our Aunt's and Uncle's bravely tolerated and enthusiastically applauded. The summer's in the pool and the lightning bugs we would catch at nightfall in the backyard. The many summer barbeque's at the house on Bedford and at the beach. But most of all I will remember Aunt Jean with love always. - Maureen McDonnell (Niece)

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
