"God Bless You Jean. You were my mother's childhood friend - Eleanore Praizner (Rekuc), and my brother's Godmother (Tom Rekuc). I have many fond memories as a child growing up in Detroit and visiting you and Wally Lipon at your home/store. May you find joyous peace and God's comfort in heaven. Tim Rekuc "
