I had the privilege of serving as Jean’s pastor from 1997-2000. She was such an encourager and was so kind to our family. We kept in contact over the years, as we shared the same wedding anniversary with her and Charles. We loved her very much. God bless the family, and we are praying for each of you during your time of loss.
