Sonya and I were heartbroken to hear about Jean. We have so many wonderful memories of her and Reggie and their many years together. Jean was such an elegant and classy lady and a wonderful friend. She raised great kids and was a wonderful role model for her whole family. We are very fortunate to have had Reggie and Jean and the Brown family as our friends. God Bless Regina, Doug, and Leigh and their families in the loss of this remarkable, dear lady. Love Steve & Sonya McKaig.

I'm so sorry to hear about sweet Jean. My mom and dad had such a fun long time friendship with Jean and Reggie and I'm thankful Mom and Jean continued their friendship after Daddy and Reggie passed away. She was a sweet friend to my mom for so many years and I have great memories of the fun times our families had together. Praying for peace for all of the family.
