    Very sorrow to hear of Jean’s passing – I became acquainted with Jean via James Onorato who asked me to do some computer work. I enjoyed helping Jean out – she was a kind and thoughtful individual as is her husband. My thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family – God Bless.

    We are so sorry for your loss. I remember working at the bank, and hearing Jean’s laughter as she and Mrs. Gallo shared each other’s company while taking their walks in Beachwood Mall. My aunt Carm, Jean and Claire were also golf buddies, in Cleveland and in Florida…nice memories…may all the wonderful memories you have of Jean help to sustain you through this difficult time, and in the days ahead.

  7. Ron,
    I am truly sorry for your loss. My best wishes to you and your family.

    Sincerely,
