    I have great childhood memories of summer adventures with Aunt Jeanne and the Diette family. She was a kind, caring woman and I can’t forget to mention an excellent cook. Some of her recipes will live on with the Gorrow family along with the memories.

    Mike, Ken, Greg and CJ sorry for your loss. Aunt Jeanne was always a calm and steady presence in the family especially in dealing with her boys and their adventures (or mishaps). Through her I got to know my Dad who was so special to her. She kept him alive though her memories and we will do the same for her.

    Ken, Mike, and Greg….I just learned about this and am sorry for your loss. I worked for your Dad at Raytheon when I was starting out as an engineer. Your mom and dad were wonderful people and I’ll never forget how welcome they made me feel.
