"Milt Hanson--What a gap this will make in my life. Calling I would say this is Milt Hanson and her reply "Well how are you." she always made me feel special. Her telling about buying a candy bar and it was almost $2. I will miss her so."

"My mom, Jeanne Palmer, and I are sad to hear of the passing away of Jean Hart. Jean has been a friend to all and is irreplaceable; she will be so missed by so many. Jean has always been there to help, a true friend, and a kind person. We will not make the trip to Carson as the weather is hard to predict. Our prayers and thoughts are with Jean and her family."

"We had many wonderful memories with Jean but one of the funniest ones was she was working at the pharmacy and I was in there with my grandson. He was maybe 3 or 4. I told him her could pick a candy. He picked a box of hot tamales which was his favorite. Jean says to him, What you got there young man and he answered, hot mollies. Jean laughed til She about cried! She mentioned that for years after that as it really tickled her funny bone. She was an amazing person. Comfort to you all, as you get through these days ahead. Cherish your memories. She was wonderful and loved by all who knew her. Deb Blatny "

"I so loved when she would tease herself if she had difficulty at the pharmacy cash register by saying, "You know it's my first time working in retail." Jean was always, always a nice person with a little bit of pixie charm."
