To the Stemper family,
I am very sorry about the loss of your Mother, I know personally, it is not easy to loose the strength of the family. When I lost my mother, some one sent me this little poem and it seemed to help a little bit.

Your Mother Is Always With You

Your mother is always with you…
She’s the whisper of the leaves
as you walk down the street.
She’s the smell of bleach in
your freshly laundered socks.
She’s the cool hand on your
brow when you’re not well.
Your mother lives inside
your laughter. She’s crystallized
in every tear drop…
She’s the place you came from,
your first home.. She’s the map you
follow with every step that you take.
She’s your first love and your first heart
break….and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, Not space…
Not even death….
will ever separate you
from your mother….
You carry her inside of you….

Again, my deepest sympathy.

Our deepest sympathy to your family on the loss of a very specai lady, Jean was gracious, generous, and had a great sense of humor. She was always proud of her Irish heritage, and willing to share Irish items with me. We looked forward to seeing her at Irish Fest and at the store, She was an unselfish presence in the lives of her family, as I recall a time she drove her son, John, and his friends home from a birthday party. She was trying to be so careful with her precious cargo, when crossing Hwy. 100, she was hit by another car. The impact threw our son, John, down on the seat, and the broken galss from the shattered window flew past him and into Jean’s face. She gladly took the brunt of it, and was so grateful that no one else was hurt. A very special lady, indeed!

To my dear friends, Sue, Pete, Bridget and Ian: I can only imagine how wonderful Jean was as a mother, grandmother and friend. I have a few fond memories of Jean down at Summerfest, working her Irish Gift Booth ,enjoying the crowds and laughing an awful lot! We are thinking of you all and wishing we were able to see you all on WEDS to remember Jean. Know we am there in spirit. Fondly, Joanie and John Temple

Loved Jean’s enthusiasm and beautiful smile. What a great Irish lady. She helped instill my pride in my own Irish heritage.
