Dear Reggie,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Jewel. She was my first bridge teacher and I enjoyed every class with her and playing against my teacher trying not to embarrass her. I will truly miss her beautiful smile and her wonderful personality but obviously God had need of her in Heaven. So be comforted my friend she is being well cared for.
Love,
Frankie Willis
