To the Dennis Family,
My deepest sympathy to the family. Jean was a long time dear friend, a beautiful soul who had a kind word for everyone.. Her dedication to our palliative care program at TDMH was enriched by her genuine love of people and desire to make a difference in the lives of so many whom she touched by her gentle caring presence. You will be missed my friend.....
