Dee and Rhonda, I’m so sorry for the loss of Jean. I loved her. She was so sweet and kind to me. I’ll never forget the goodies she either sent (by your dad), or brought herself later, after he passed. She always asked me if I had tasted it and did it taste okay? I always made sure she had cinnamon floss and a goodie bag when she left. I have really missed her and our conversations since I retired.

Love, Debbie

I am sending love and sympathy on your loss. We always had such good visits with Jean when in Waynesboro. She made us feel welcome whenever we just dropped in. As you know, we called her "girl" Jean and Gene was "boy" Gene. We will miss her. Love to all of you from Shirley and Aubrey's entire family.
