Aunt Jean I will never forget how special you made my three boys and myself feel. This day was so cold but you made Lisa and Karen bring you out to Meridian to watch the boys play football. They remember this game as the one Aunt Jean came to see. You are the reason Paige and I got to spend so many summers together. I remember us standing in your front seat as you drove between the two farm houses. Or the night Jennifer and I got scared and took off running to your house and the porch was being redone. We ran up those stairs and fell down in there. Lol the look on your face when you opened that door knowing there was no floor there for someone to stand on. God broke our hearts again to prove that he only takes the best. I love you so much and will miss you.
