I have such fond memories of Aunt Jean - from when I was about 12 years old and stayed with her while my parents were in Florida arranging our family’s move back to Augusta. She was always so kind to me. This past January, while visiting with my sister Gayle, I got to visit with her. It was a day full of fun and laughter together- one I will never forget. She will be truly missed.

So thankful for the last few years Aunt Jean has spent Thanksgiving dinner with us. We treasure the stories and memories she shared with us of her childhood growing up in the country. We will truly miss her.
