    Thom and I are so sorry to hear about Jean’s passing. We know she loved the Lord and is now in His presence. We had the honor of serving her while we were at Camden Springs with her for 6 months. Jean touch our hearts so much, we loved her stories she would share with us. The times she came to our little church service at the home, Jean was such a godly lady and it was our privilege to know her. Until we meet again Jean. We love you!
