It's with sadness I just learnt of Jean's passing. We were childhood friends on Bradford Ave , continued our friendship through High school and years after.We lost touch over time but some old Bradford ties informed me of her remarriage and move to Hilton head . Prayers for her and her family . I will have wonderful memories always.

I have fond memories of our high school years with Jeanne.The last time I saw her was at a Haverhill High School class reunion many years ago but when I recently had lunch with two other classmates we talked about her
and wondered how she was doing.
