Dear Marianne, Henry, Rob, John, Carolyn and Greg, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your beloved Mother's passing. You are all in my heart and mind. I vividly remember Jean as a wonderful and gentle soul and cannot forget her beauty, grace and positive spirit. I still treasure the Guardian Angel Lapel Pin that She gave me years ago, when I was working in Milford. Her heart might have stopped beating, but her presence and root of love will stay forever. Know I am thinking of you, Bruna Genovese.
