Teresa, Your mother was a beautiful and classy lady. So supportive of Jennifer. I remember her at cheerleading events. She was always dressed so neat and always had a smile and kind word. I know she loved her family dearly. May God comfort you. I know you will cherish the wonderful memories of your sweet Mom. ❤️🙏

It is with great sadness that I heard of Jean's passing😓. She was such a sweet, kind and loving person and a dear friend to my mother, Betty Petet, whom they both shared the same birthday. They are both in heaven now together with many others gone before them. I love you Jean❤️. Donna Petet Barbree and Jada Barbree

My sweet, sweet longtime friend.
Oh how she will be missed!!
So many memories. We attended church together. We camped together for years.
We lived on the same street for a number of years. I would, sometimes walk down the street and eat dinner with Jean and her kind husband, Mack.
I love her family. Forever friends. Patsy B.
