"Aunt Jean was a true gem! She truly loved all of her family! aunt Jean had a great flair for baking! She always welcomed everybody in her kitchen and the smell was amazing. She was always there for a hug and kiss. Jean loved Madison and Hannah like her own Garrett and Lyla. When I opened my dental office in 2005, she was my first patient in the door day 1. She invited Jacqueline and me to join us as their guest to Texan games. I will miss her very much! We will all miss her very much. Love, Adam, Jacqueline, Madison and Hannah"
