"Our family lost a dear person to us yesterday. My Aunt Jean entered heaven on a beautiful sunny Saturday. I am sad for us but rejoice for her because she is at peace and with the Lord she loves and her dear husband!!! At these times the memories come flooding back and I have hundreds. I always felt her love and support. I remember seeing her so many times at the Shoe Box where she worked with my uncle Dell. I remember her wearing a Centennial dress to work during the Hampton Centennial. I also remember my mom and i sneaking over to the parking lot and taping a sign on her white Buick Skylark for her 50th birthday telling people to honk at her for her birthday!!! Butch and I were in a small group Bible study with her and Richard for several years and had many rich conversations. One summer mom and I walked beans with Jean and Rich on their farm. Richard gave Jean and I a hard time because he said we took out as many beans as we did weeds!!! He wasn't wrong, our motto was you don't have to do it good, just fast!!! I could go on for hours. I loved her so much and will really miss her. RIP Aunt Jean."
"Always such a nice lady. Baby sat Linda for them during my high school days. Always enjoyed the family. Your family is in my prayers."
