Don and Wayne, I planned to be at the funeral, Sorry, I was not feeling well and had family from out of Town come in yesterday(had to cancel out my Senior golf tourn.today for the funeral) . I really wanted to see Both of you! I really miss your Dad and Jean and I use to talk quiet often on the phone, before he died and after. Do not know if you care, but it is true, the nite before the memorial came out, I had a dream about your Dad and we were playing golf, Really weird. While I was reading the newspaper, I said a prayer and I hope Jean left us with no pain. There is another link broken in the chain, but with Gods help, we will all reconnect the Chain in Heaven. Please forgive me, Love you both. Lynn Hammer

This is for Jean's family. For over thirty years Jean was a big part of my life, as I was her hairdresser. She had an appointment every Friday morning. We had a great time, laughing , crying and getting aggravated together, sometimes at one another and other people. She was loved by everyone in our salon. Mainly we laughed and she could tell the funniest good jokes. She was a real lady and could she cook. Grabbies!!! She loved her family so much and she was always happy to see them. I have so many memories of this very special lady. She had many friends and they loved to play Pinochle. I could go on and on, but I will finish. Heaven has another Angel and she made it there to celebrate it with her husband Roy. Shirley, Don ,and Wayne each of you held a special place in your Mother's heart , never forget that. Enough of my preaching. Peace, Prayers and Love!

I've known Jean, Roy, Shirley and Don since the middle 1950's. Shirley and I were confirmed together in 1957 and attended St. Paul Lutheran School where we became close friends. I spent many nights at their home. Wayne was born later and he attended Redeemer where my Mother went. My mother Esther Frank and my father Edmund Frank were friends of Roy and Jean and loved having beer, drinks and dinner together. Later in life Jean often visited my mother when my mother could no longer drive. They would talk for hours. One time we had a Confirmation Reunion dinner at Mesa Village Clubhouse so Shirley brought Jean over to visit with mother. Many of us friends went in small groups to see both of them at mother's condo. I cherish the few times I visited her at the Pavilion and know she (like my mother) was ready to go to their eternal home. Both lived a long, godly life. I love you Jean.
