    I am honored to have grown up being a part of Grammie and family. She was such a beautiful woman who loved to laugh and has made many memories for those who knew her. You will be missed, Grammie. I love you.

    Sending the warmest of love and prayers to your family. We were honored to meet and share time with your gracious, beautiful and amazing mother. She raised three remarkable daughters and the world and our community is so blessed by that. We know Jeane is resting in the strong arms of our son Blair. We know that bright star in tonight’s sky is her’s.

    Jean was one classy beautiful lady. I always looked forward to seeing her when she came in for her appointment. We had great conversation and I was always amazed how she kept up with current music. She had so much love for her family and not just her daughters although they were her pride and joy. She always appreciated and loved being included in all the family events. She knew how fortunate she was to have you all caring and loving her the way that you did. I felt very very close to Jean to the point where I was her family too. I will miss her greatly and I will always remember her for all her loving wonderful attributes that is not found in many of us. R. I. P. Jean. ❤️
