  • Dear Jean and Family, It has probably been 65 years since I first saw Tommy and Jean walking hand in hand at Lake Hopatcong, N.J. planning their wedding. I loved that you put a picture of Tommy as a young man because that is how all the Magner cousins (all 42 cousins) remember our oldest cousin. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. Our deepest condolences to you Jean and to your family. Mike Hahn, Austin TX

  • I am so deeply sorry for your great loss. I have such fond memories of Tommy and how handsome he was in his sailor uniform. I remember watching Tommy and Jean dancing on the porch of the bungalow at the Lake. No couple was ever more in love! May God be with Jean and the Family and may happy memories sustain you.
