Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Dear Mary and Jim Our sincerest sympathy for your loss. May your beautiful memories be a never ending source of comfort to you and your family
Beth and Artie Carreira
My deepest sympathies to the entire Sweeney clan. Your mother and grandmother was always a lady of style, grace and patience. My memories of Jeanne's patience were always on display when Jim's college friends would invade Bayonne or the beach house( mostly unannounced), and she welcomed us with open arms. She will be missed. God Bless
