Charlie,
I was so sorry to get the news about Jean. If Larry were still here, he would join me in saying how much we enjoyed your friendship over the years. The highlight was when you and Larry retired together from your service to this great country. It was a joy to share that time with you and Jean. May God bless you.

Charlie, we're so sorry to hear about Jean's passing; what a wonderful couple you were. The service you both provided to this Country and the Air Force for so many years was above and beyond; so proud to have known you both.

Charlie, I'll always remember spending some time on a dinner boat in Savannah at one of the "Corporate Board" outings in 1991. My wife Pat, also a Home Ec major, and Jean hit it off and you and I enjoyed listening. We both thank you for your gracious acceptance of the new kids in town. Our prayers are with you and your family and we will remember you always.

Betty and I are so sorry about losing Jean Marie. I remember well the fun times we all had and the great meals she used to prepare over the many years. Also back in Memphis when we were right out of UT Jean managed to keep several of us Clarksville boys on the straight and narrow.
