I am so sorry for your loss. I delivered lunch meals to Jean on Tuesdays and Fridays and enjoyed talking with her for a little bit. She was a very hospitable and kind lady. She will be missed. My condolences to all.
I knew Jean from the Methodist Women and our mutual friendship with Maxine Gabriel. Both Maxine and I had the highest regard for Jean. She embodied Christian leadership and character. She lived her beliefs and gave us a model of citizenship.
