It's amazing to think that my Grandma Jean had a chance to meet so many of our wonderful children. Grandma Jean has been a glue stick, a listening ear, and much more for not only me but for our three children, too. I'll never forget the day she arranged transport for her and Grandpa Tony to get to the hospital for Adrian and Anthony's birth. I still remember her yelling down the hall at Grace Seton Labor and Delivery hall, "Don't have those babes without me!"
She taught all of our children how to pick the BEST peaches, taught Adrian and Anthony how to correctly bargain at the farmers market, and taught Nora how to find out if a candle is a sparkler or trick candle. She's been an amazing blessing in our family's life, but she was your mother first. And she's created the wonderful, strong, loving, strong father.
Grandma Jean birthed dad and raised a wonderful son, husband, and father. And for that, we are forever grateful.
Cheers to her, and cheers to you, dad.
Love, Christine (and Jackson)
