Was sorry to read of Jean's passing. Have known her for most of her years in Melrose when she was married to Jack Claire - trips to Moultonboro, NH together, signing all the old Catholic hymns as we recalled our Catholic school years, when she worked at Shaw's, as we watched many a football game together and other sports teams too; always saw her at St. Mary's in later years. Have missed her there and was sorry to hear she had passed. May she rest in peace and comfort now, and may her family keep happy memories In their hearts.
