I became acquainted with Jean from working at Lawrence Crawford and serving the clients from the Oblong CILA. Jean was a very special person, she always made people smile and she always had a smile on her face. I know that she will be together once again with Willis!

I love you so much. You were the strongest woman I know. And when I would fight with mom and dad, you were the one I'd run to. I grew up wanting to be like you because you were independent and didn't give a crap about what others thought. You put me in pagents until I was 8.....I will miss our talks and nail time. Love your pooh bear:)
