    I just heard this morning that my cousin Jean died. I am shocked and sad. Over the years we have grown apart but as children, we grew up together. I spent my weekends and summer times with Jean and Jo-Anne. My Aunt Janet would drive us around and Jo-Anne would bong in her seat in the back. I used to bong with her because it made the ride more fun. We used to have sleepovers – Jo-Anne and I on the bottom bunk and Jeannie on the top. She used to get annoyed with us because we would whisper and giggle all night. I know my Aunt Janet and Uncle George love their children with their whole hearts. One memory that stands out to me more than any other. We all went tubing down the Esopus one summer in the early 80s. There was a whole gang of us. My dad, my Uncle George, all of us kids. Jeannie was maybe 14, so I guess Jo-Anne and I were about 7 or 8. Jean had a seizure while we were tubing. We were moving through water that was moving kind of fast. Before I even realized what was happening my Uncle George was in motion. I have never in my whole life seen a human being move faster than my Uncle George to get to his daughter. It almost supernatural, like he walked on water to get across the creek to get to his daughter. I was pretty little, but it struck me at the moment how totally loved Jeannie was. I have so many other memories of her, but that one is seared in my brain forever. I am so sad for everyone in her immediate family because I know how close they all are and how totally loved she is. She will always in my heart. I am so, so sorry for this loss.
