  1. As a family, we first met Jean twenty years ago as a neighbour to Edna and Ray. She was the best neighbour, very kind and friendly and there were many happy times with fun and laughter over a cup of coffee. In later year, she kept a friendly eye and we will miss seeing her tending her beautiful flowers. Rest peacefully, dear Jean. With kind thoughts and love to all the family, Edna, sons John and Pete, and Gill Xx

  3. Jean I don’t remember the first time we met, however I do remember the chats we had about your life and growing up, and raising Karen. At Christmas, a card would always arrive. I also remember the knitted gifts you would send to your grandchildren. Once you put someone in your heart they remained there forever, just as your kind spirit will live with me. Bless you on this next part of your journey. Love Sheila and Jade XX

    A Mother’s love
    A warm embrace
    For us is ever true
    Your smile, your laugh. Our memories of you
    Will always carry us through.

    I heard you whisper “it’s all fine now
    Don’t worry anymore about me.”
    For all you gave . I thank you Mom.
    Your love I know will sustain me .

    On my mind and in my heart
    For you shall ever be.
    Because just as much as I am of you,
    You are a part of me.

    Although your time on earth has ended.
    It’s never the end for me.
    For you left me the gift of a Mother’s perfect love.
    We are bonded eternally.

    Rest easy Jean….forever in our hearts xx

    Audra, George and family

  9. Sitting in my garden, which Jean would’ve loved, listening to this perfect tribute and celebration of her life, I’ve been smiling and tearful at recalling my memories of my London Mum who put me up, fed me, proudly showed off her garden, shared a wicked joke and cuddled my son like one of her own – all on many occasions. Karen, I’m proud of you for sharing that beautiful poem – so apt, you did her proud, girl. Amber and Ava, she knew how much you loved her, I’m sure. Sending much love to you all, Alison ♥️
