I will always remember her smiling face that showed she cared about people no matter what back ground. Her and Mr walker’s hugs always made me feel part of the deaf community. She will truly be missed.

I remember meeting her for the first time at deaf event while I was in high school back in the early 90's and will never forget her telling me that I could talk to her anytime. And years later after I got married, my husband, Todd would gladly help both Ken and Jean to repairs their computer problems and even set up VP back then. I remember one time, we all, even my 3 children were young and enjoyed being around them and enjoyed chatting with them. Jean,we surely will miss you so much and so glad that I got a chance to get to know you over the years!! I love you, Jean!! :o)
