Heaven has another angel. I will miss my friend Jean, she was always a joy to visit at Rolling Fields and such stories she had to tell. I will always remember her smile. She is dancing again....

We had many hours together and enjoyed every moment. Half of our time was spent in Florida and when our husbands were golfing we always found something fun to do.
The four of us spent many happy hours out on Lake Okeechobee fishing. I’m feeling your loss. You have my love and prayers.
