Plant a tree in memory of Jean

An environmentally friendly option

C Caro Thompson on Apr 27, 2021

Dear Gary, Lynn and to all the Swanson family;
We are deeply sorry for the lost of your mother. She was a dear friend of my mother who passed almost three years ago. Jean was so funny we always had a million laughs. My mother and I use to have so much fun with her swimming in her beautiful pool. We were always welcomed with open arms. As a matter of fact, I will never forget that my son learned to swim at her pool when he was 5 y.o. He is almost 38 and still remembers. Gone from our sight, but never our hearts. Much love to you all
Carol Thompson (Marian Van Dine's daughter).
