Tim and I have been friends since high school and Jean was a welcoming presence in those youthful days. Always wanting to feed and refresh all of Tim's friends whenever we were in the house, which being across the street from the school was a lot! She and Elliot were a positive influence on my future self and I will always remember her as the kind and gentle soul she was, quick to share a laugh, even with awkward teenagers. She lived and loved well. I celebrate that life and hope everyone that has shared her joy does the same. Greg Brown peace
