Jim, very sorry to hear about Jean. I hope you are well. I guess you've wondered if I was still around. I sold the house in Loudon and moved to Nashville 35 years ago. Call me sometime. 615-823-0440. -Rick Forshee

Even though we had lost touch until recently, Jean was a person that I enjoyed many, many special fun times with. She will always have a special place in my heart. Rest in peace my friend.
