  17. I just heard of the passing of Jean from Doug in a conversation I just recently had with him on Saturday, Feb. 8th. I was very sadden to hear of her sudden passing. She was a beautiful person. I am writing this since Doug and I were a part of each other’s lives years ago but I know how much his sisters, brothers and family mean to him. It has been years since I have seen any of the family, but that does not take the hurt and pain away. So I am saying all the prayers I can for all of you at this time when God is shining down on all of you and letting you know that he Now has another Angel in Heaven with him. I hope and pray that you all as a family understand what a truly sweet, beautiful and kind person I thought Jean was. Thank you for allowing me to add this to her memories. She was a wonderful sister-in-law. Doug, my thoughts are with you and all of your family. Always Caring, Pat Rymer
