We are so sad to hear of Jean's passing. She was a special lady. We have known the family since our daughters were best friends in high school. Jean attended many of our church functions and was a great supporter of her family in all that they did. She will be missed by her many friends and family. She is no longer suffering and she has been made whole again by our Lord. Our prayers go out to Carl, Jill and the rest of her family.
