    Paul and Marge, so saddened to hear of Mary Jeans death.   Your mom and dad will welcome her home where she will have no more sorrow or pain.   I so admire how you all took such good care of her all these years.  Your mom and dad are smiling and so blessed🙏��

    Paul, Marge, Don, Ron and families,

    I'm terribly sorry to hear about cousin Mary Jean. Please know she is in God's arms and God's house and resting in peace now.

    She was so lucky to have such a supportive brother and sister-in-law and nephews and their families which made her life so much easier for her.

    We will miss our quiet little Mary Jean but knowing from experience that she will have a better life ahead joining again with her mother, dad, aunts, uncles and cousins.

    Sincere Sympathy to the Colton family.

     Paul,Marge & family,

     We are so sorry to hear about Mary Jeans Passing. It was kind of a surprise but after talking to Paul recently he said she was bad. No more suffering  & yes she was very lucky to have a loving & supportive family all her life.
