To the family of Jean Blount Nesbitt: We send our deepest sympathies to you all in grieving the loss of Jean. She was an NHS Class of 1970 classmate of us both. Jean was always the sweetest, kindest...and SMARTEST person in our class. We're sure she carried these most admired traits on with her in her adult life.

Cason Monk has advised us they will limit the number of people attending Jean's service today to 10. So, we will respectfully honor this directive, but we will try to tune in to the service via the funeral home FACEBOOK page.

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Very respectfully, Bill and Lou Ann Hoppe
