To the Jordan family......your Mom /Grandmother was an amazing woman. She was quite the fighter right to the end. I will cherish all the fun times that I spent growing up at your parents house. You all were very lucky to have her for all these years. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and love go out to you all at this sad time.

To the Jordan family: My sincere condolences on the loss of your dear Mother. As your babysitter when we were all younger, I remember her, your late Dad, and their children all very well. They were a wonderful couple and raised an admirable family that I loved. My prayers go out to all of you. God bless.

J.J. and the Jordan clan. In behalf of the Cloutier tribe, I'm so sorry, you can be sure your Mother and Dad are together again. They did their "tour." They can rest now. Your parents like ours, really paid their dues raising these two "broods." I promise you they will be in our prayers. As the Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Council #488 you can be sure you ALL will be in our prayers. "May God be will you and with your Spirit."
