I am so sadden by Jean's passing.  I worked with "Jeannie Sweetie" at Marine Midland; her nickname could not have been more apt.  I have thought of her often over the years.  She was truly valued.

To The Sweeney Family,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your wife/mom.  She was such a big part of our families.  I ran into her not to long ago at Wegmans and we had a nice chat.  Just wanted you to know that she will be dearly missed by all of us and that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
