Something just told me to check on Ms. Jean tonight with the hurricane heading towards Panama City and I find this. This is Donna, John and Ona Norsworthy's daughter. I am so sorry to see this. I thought the world of Mr Billy and Ms Jean. I hope mother met her at the gate. They always had such fun together.
