Condolences to the Family

My deepest sympathy to Jean’s entire family. Jean worked with my mom, Shirley Andrejev, and they shared many years as good friends. I enjoyed the times that I was able to be with them both, and will always remember your mom for her kindness and sense of humor. Again, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Kathy Seifred
