Dear, sweet Jean. I have many good memories of you and Uncle Mac. You were a part of my life from the day I was born. I have missed our talks about Uncle Mac, nature, your cats and just whatever was going on in Plant City. You were a top notch Avon Representative for many years. I remember you bathing Sport in only Avon products. He was the best smelling dog! You made the best greens. Washing them first in the washing machine made me smile. Thank you for calling me your Special Niece and continuing to share your love even though Uncle Mac had passed. You are missed so much by your extended family of in-laws, neighbors, church family and Woman's Club.
You are at peace now. I know you missed not just Mac but also your parents, brother and two sisters. I believe you are watching over us as we cope with our loss. May God grant peace and understanding to us all.
