So many wonderful memories, so many good times!! So many laughs through the years!! Jean was truly a special woman who was so good to everyone!! She was the mother of my life long best friend, Tammie.
I'm so thankful for Tammie and all of her family!! They all have a special place in my heart!! I am so very blessed to have known Jean almost my whole life!! And blessed to have her think of my girls as her own grandchildren and she loved them very much and they loved her!! The last time I saw her at her son Mikes funeral, just a few weeks ago, the last thing that I said to her was that I told her I loved her and she said I love you too baby, and then I hugged her, looked at that sweet smile as I walked away. I'm so glad I got to tell her that I loved her!! Prayers for all the Mays family!! I love you all!! May you rest in peace Jean.. I love and miss you very much!!
