I miss you so much. The 3 years I have known you I always called you my “Jeanie baby” you always asked me how my baby was doing or how my girl was doing and we would laugh and cut up when I told you she was rotten. I am gonna miss having talks and laughing with you so much. Until we meet again my Jeanie baby R.I.P. We will reunite one day and celebrate in heaven. All of us caregivers are gonna miss you. Love you so much sweet lady.

I have known Jean Green since she moved into MountainBrook Village many years ago. She loved my 3 grandsons so much and held them all as babies. They are now 9, 7 and 5 years old. Last Saturday a week before she passed away, I brought them to visit her outside her window. She was so happy to see them. Today when they came, the oldest said, "She is gone." I said, "Yes, but we know where she is." He pointed up and said, "In Heaven." Then he and his brother both said with tears in their eyes, "At least we got to see her." They were very sad as we all are. She always had a smile and always asked me about the boys. - Jean, we love you so much and will miss you greatly. Rest in Peace............Dianne Hall, Marketing Director, MountainBrook Village, Sevierville, TN
