My thoughts are with you and yours. Jean was such a pleasant and positive volunteer, always smiling. A faithful member of the “Posse” for RSVP. We are all better for having known her.

Dear Melinda and family:
My prayers and my heartfelt sorrow go out to you. I know how hard it is to lose your mother. I remember her well from our Lewisburg days. She was always smiling whenever I saw her. She was a kind and thoughtful person. I am sure she is receiving her just rewards in the glory of the Lord.
I will keep her in my prayers. God bless all of you.

Melinda, Joyce, Steve and all the family,
We are sad about Aunt Jean’s passing. She was so much fun; a beautiful soul; we loved it when she came to Arizona to visit. I know she is not happy to leave you all, but I’m sure she’s charging around the bases after hitting a pitch from Ray and laughing her head off. Fun, Freedom, Bliss.

Melinda & Family, Sorry to hear about your Mom, she’s in a better place now.
