When our daughter and family moved to TN. we looked up Jean and Mona. My husband mother Dolly and Jean's Mother Opal were sisters. Jean and Mona would always take my husband and I to Cracker Barrel. My husband loved to go there. I always enjoyed visiting Jean. I never saw her that she didn't have a smile on her face. She was a dear sweet lady. My heart goes out to Mona she loved her mother and took such good care of her.
