Dear family of Jean,

Sending thoughts and prayers from Ohio to all of you at this time of loss. Jean has won the victory since her race is over. We can "only imagine" what peace and joy she has in heaven with Jesus now. You are all to be commended for what you did for her during the struggles she experienced in life. So we are sending encouragement your way to focus on being faithful and live each moment for the hope we have through Jesus to all be reunited in heaven some day. Remember God loves each one of you and so do we.
--- Bruce and Ruth Ann Yancey
