Great memories of Jean and Harry It started out as dancing friends at the Robins Nest especially square dancing so much fun. We became very close friends from that day on. I will never forget my good friend she was very special to my heart ♥️. We will miss her so much she was a special gal for sure and loved by all. We would go dancing till 1:00 in the morning then we all would for breakfast. We sure had a lot of good people that sat at our table at the Robins Nest.. Jean thank you for all the great memories give Harry a Hug from me Rest In Peace till we meet again
