Dear Jerry,Darrin,Lee,Jackie,Erin,Eric, Kristen,George,Mat,Aubrey,Zack,Lindsey,and baby due in January,How my heart is aching for you. I’ve known Jean longer than anyone,we shared the same womb.I was so proud and honered to be her twin. She was an incredible,fun,loving and giving person. She loved God and her family,and her most sincere desire was that each of you through faith in Jesus would spend eternity with her in heaven. We always laughed and had so much fun when we were together.We miss her so much, and my life will never be the same without her. How comforting to know that we’ll see her again some day. Much Love and Hugs, Larry and Jane

I wanted you to know how sorry I was to hear about Jean’s passing. I have always appreciated her and will always feel blessed for having known her. I’m so sorry.

I will always remember Jean as a happy, loving, and bubbly person. She was always fun and caring …much like her twin….In fact,I remember as a kid,not being able to tell the difference between Jean and Jane.

There just never seems to be anything adequate to say at times like this. Stating Jean is no longer in pain and is in a better place some how just seems so trite to say. Though I hope that being reminded of this offers some peace to you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all! I am so sorry for your pain!

I will greatly miss Aunt Jean! She meant the world to me and will be greatly missed. Her stories, and food, always made me smile. My childhood is full of special family memories of holidays and family gatherings. She was always giving me advice and I will cherish the times I spent with her and her family. I love you Aunt Jean.

I’ll always remember Jean as the great encourager. Her support was especially meningful to me during a very difficult time in my life. She was taken away from us far too early, but I know we are all better for having known her. My condolences to Jerry as well as Jean’s children,sisters and brother, who I’m certain are feeling a terrible sense of loss.

Jerry and family,

I was saddened to learn of Jean’s passing. She was a lovely person, good neighbor and friend who I had the privledge to know for 14 years. She was very down to earth, upbeat, a glass half full type of person who never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She’d call and encourage me to walk always saying, “Elaine, it’ll do you good” and she was right and we would speed walk with her always being a little ahead with me lagging behind and I’d tell her I only wish I could bottle that energy and become rich and she would just laugh.

She loved her husband, family and friends and was very proud to be a mother and grandmother and talked about them often. I knew Kristen the best being friends with my daughter Becky and had the pleasure to meet Jacki, Jane and others today.

Heaven received and angel and she will be missed by many and I’ll miss my friend.
