    My condolences to the Smith family. Auntie Jean was a beautiful lady her spirit and laughter were radiant and infectious. She had a twinkle in her eye that always made me smile. I have many fond memories of auntie Jean and feel very blessed to have been part of her life. She was a special part of mine.
    Lots of love Rob McDougall & family.
