MCLENNAN- In loving memory of Jean Elaine. March 30, 1943 to December 20, 2017.

We miss your smile and laughter.

You never said I’m leaving,

You never said goodbye.

You were gone before I knew it,

And only God knows why.

A million times I have needed you,

A million times I have cried.

If love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,

In death I loved you still.

In our hearts we hold a place

That only you can fill.

Forever loved,

John, Frank, Don, Doug, Mark, families and friends
