Jeanne Told

I always loved this picture. Her and Dad were
so happy when they spent the summer in
Coeur d'Alene with Andi, me and the dogs.

Our Mom passed away on April 26, 2013. She lived the last year of her life with her kids at least a few months at each of our homes in Phoenix, Prescott and Salem, OR. Each of us could tell she was deeply despondent about the death of our Father. It was important to us to have her near, help her cope and make sure her quality of life was maintained. No matter where she was, Jeanne always wanted to volunteer at the local hospitals and senior centers. Giving back to her community and her kids were the joys of her life.
"Death is never sad if the gift of life has been well used"
RIP Mom, we love you and miss you.

Ken and Family,

I'm so, so sorry about the loss of your Mother. Of course I never met your parents, but feel like I have gotten a little glimpse of who they were by the photos you've posted, which remind me of the saying that goes, "Death is never sad, if the gift of life has been well used." I've no doubt that for both your parents their lives were 'well used,' but I am very sad for you and your family at this time. I will keep you in my prayers that you all find peace and comfort from one another and in the memories that can never be taken away.
