I am sorry for your family's loss. I worked at First National/First Union got almost 16 years. I enjoyed many conversations with Jean. Such a sweet and loving person. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Lean on Jesus - He will be there every step of the way and His grace is sufficient.

Jean was my supervisor at First National/First Union for several years. She attended my wedding. I really appreciated Jean and thought very highly of her. After leaving the bank, I enjoyed running into her over the years. You have my deepest sympathies and prayers for peace and God's comfort.
