Dear Family, please accept my deepest condolences. Your precious mother, grandmother and great grandmother, has such a beautiful soul. I won’t use the past tense since I know and believe that her beautiful soul is now living in everlasting joy with Jesus. It is indeed my privilege to call Jean my dear Carmelite sister. Jean exuded holiness.
