    Its still hard to beleive that you are gone. I still hear your voice, see you sitting in your chair, walk into your room to see if you are alright or need anything. I see and feel you every where. I dont know how to do this without you. I know that you are free of pain and at peace. Its hard and I love you. I will see you one day. Give dad a hug and kiss for me, take care of each other. I love you both. Your daughter.

  • I’m so saddened to hear of Jean’s passing … she was an Avon co-worker and a great friend. to me I know that she is no longer suffering and is finally at peace. Jean was well loved and would have given anyone the shirt off her back. She loved dressing up as Mrs. Claus for Avon’s Santa’s Workshop and really enjoyed talking with all the little children…I have lots of pictures of her as Mrs. Claus with my grandchildren sitting on her lap. Jean talked to me quite a bit about her church and church friends … she loved them all. She was a sweet, loving lady and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. I pray for peace and comfort for her daughters, Mary and Nancy and all of her other family members. God Bless all of you!!
