To the Wetzel Family. I do not every remember meeting Jean, But I do remember my days at the Egg Farm, and working for all of you. Although it was relatively a short time in my life. Still to this day I talk about my time there. I have nothing but fond memories of working there. The egg fights, mice, chicken heads on the belt!!! Allen trying so hard to be the mean boss and getting mad when we forgot to flip on both belts for the eggs. I can still remember the smell of Mr. Wetzel pipe, it smelled so much better then the Egg Farm itself. Mrs. Wetzel and Martha were so kind and fun to work for, what beautiful ladies they were and I imagine time has not changed that. But it is Mary Jo who I know the best. Friends from grade school thought different high schools and still today. I so look forward to our annual Christmas Card exchange. Such a beautiful friend I have in you. Fun, smart,kind and funny. And Cute "little Eddie" I hope you are well. Although I do not know Jean I am sure that she too was a wonderful, Beautiful and smart woman. With a family like this how could she not be. I just wanted you all to know that my heart goes out to all of you. My sister Mary, who also worked at the Egg Farm, and took pride at getting under Allen's skin, all in a fun way. Passed away 6 years ago. So I do know what you are going thought. Your sadness will lessen,and the happy memories will comfort you. Til then I will keep you all in my prayers. With all my sympathy Donna (Costello) Egan

The nice thing about memories is that they allow us to continue to spend time with the ones we love. Even though our loved ones are not with us in person, it is a wonderful thing to be instantly transported to their company through those happy moments in memories. Reliving memories can bring a smile to your face and your heart. Hoping you can find comfort and peace in memories of your time together. Thinking of you at this difficult time- you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

As your only child, let me be the one to start this memory book. I love you, mom! As tears roll down my face, I try to remember the good times & not the difficult last month of your life. You are the best mom a girl could ask for, you've made me the strong, independent, woman I am today. I'm so glad you've had time to spend with your grandkids, babysitting and sleepovers. I'm thankful that God didn't take you 7 years ago after your car accident. Your life wouldn't have been complete without meeting the Jakester! I know your health had gone downhill since that accident, but am so thankful for every minute we've had together. Who will I call to brag about my great shopping trips?? I think that will be the hardest for me, not being able to pick up the phone and just call for any random thing. Be at peace now, mom. Your suffering is over. Love, Tracey
