Jean was a beautiful person and truly so loving. She had a great, musical laugh and a brilliant smile. She loved her family so much, as well as her many dogs. Her light was tremendous; it will continue to shine on with her family and all the love she gave so unconditionally through her life. God bless you, Jeanie. Rest peacefully and proudly of the incredible family you raised and the friends whose lives you touched. Love you.

My beloved friend (and sister), Erica - how do I even begin to express my deep sorrow for the loss of your beautiful mom. I simply cannot find enough words to properly express all that my 💜 heart longs to say. You are a brave, loving, kind, supportive daughter and I admire you for how much your family meant to YOU. YOU always shared fun, caring, joyful memories about your home. I know nothing can ease your pain. Allow it all to explode. Do not try to hold back - just to be strong for others. There is "strength in your tears." I love you my dear friend. I regret not having any chance to meet your mom - but I believe you carry her in you. You are so talented (as I read your mom is). I want you to ALWAYS KNOW - I AM HERE, when you need to vent, scream, cry or just sit quietly. May your mom be at peace as she awaits the rest.
Erica.. I'm sorry for your loss. I pray that God comforts you and your family during this trying time. The loss of your mother is a great loss not only for you, but our society. Your mother was a terrific woman and I see the positive influence she left on you. Sending many prayers and hugs.

My beloved cousin Jean, I cannot believe that you have departed us more than six months ago. I miss our frequent telephone conversations that would almost always end up in laughter because our sense of humor was so similar because we could always find comedy even in the most awkward situations possible. I remember your comment regarding the photo of me sitting on the donkey in Tijuana, Mexico with your mom, dad, and grandma sitting in the cart behind me back in 1962. Your comment was "Can you guess who the real jackass is?" Obviously, the answer would be me! On a more serious note, I know that you and your brother Jim, at times, had a tenuous relationship; but, I knew, in my heart, that you both loved each other immensely. Your death was a crushing blow to your brother, James Arlon Langham, who died suddenly of a heart attack less than 2 months after your passing, on August 22, 2022. Since your dad was the closest and most beloved sibling of my mom, Joan "Jill" Langham Domanski Branzet, I dedicate a prayer of healing to all of the descendants of Arlon Smith "Pete" Langham and Frances Carabin Langham, in my mother's memory. May you all rest in peace. With much love and cherished memories, Skip
