Dear Bruce & Family Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. I feel privileged to say that I knew Jean. Growing up in Big Bay are the memories that I hold the most dear. I can remember the day that I met the "McGuire Family." Jean was so full of life and spirit and I can still hear her calling to me, saying "Come on over Leianne!" Then I would race over and have the time of my life. Both she and Bruce held the respect of my grandparents for simply being who they were and how they portrayed themselves. She would do anything for you, if she possibly could. The turn out at the funeral home shows you how many lives she touched in some way. Your family should be proud of that. Please know that if there is anything I can do, don't hesitate to ask. I have loved getting back in touch with you all. God Bless Leianne

Bruce & the McQuire family. My deepest condolences for your lost. Although I've only recently have been acquainted with Bruce & Jean I was saddened from the news of Jeans' passing. I visted the Paisley Steam Show on Saturday and not knowing of Jeans fate I could'nt help think I'd see Jean & Bruce somewhere on the grounds. No doubt she was there in spirit sharing past tales with her pals & having a cheer or two. Also, I'll be reminded of Jeans' spirited values as I recall the first time we met. I was able to persuade Bruce & Jean to join our Clavering Community for our Church Supper. All our best. Jim Gulliver, Family & Staff

Hi, as i have only ever spoke to Jean, i do not know anyone else, in the family, but Jean filled me in pretty quick on what she had been doing, farming like we also used to ,Jean seemed to me to be a very nice lady, worrying about others, as she had called & had quite a lengthy chat with myself about my Mom & her whereabouts, also when the anniversary party was to be had, she was concerned if she did not invite Gladys, & i told Jean not to worry about it, as it was hard for Mom to get around. And then when i phoned Jean about Mom passing we had quite a lengthy chat again & before i hung up, Jean said take care & i love you, this lovely lady did not know me for long & she had quite a way about her! I am truly sorry, but i am happy that Jean suffers no more, as she had said during our last conversation, this had been pretty hard for her, & also the whole family, take care & love one another, as Jean did, just by talking to you ! Shari Avison. Jean had visited my Mom in Durham @ Serenity & also @ Birmingham retirement lodge, my Mom & Jean had been chatting on the phone , my number is 519 924 1629 if you would like to call ! I am assuming Mom & Jean are up in heaven chatting now !Jean,rest in peace, & say hi to Mom.
