To Jean’s family, Cassie, Conley, Deanna and Michelle and the grandkids. I want to say how much I loved your mom. She had a great wit, a quiet but strong will and she never gave up hope. I know God answered our prayers that she not be alone and that she would not suffer. Goodbye my friend. I will see you on Resurrection Morning when Jesus comes to take us home!!
