Jean, It has been a blessing to know you and being your neighbor has been wonderful these past 28 yrs. And thru the years we became more like family. I'll always remember the chats we'd have under your car port and the times we'd just laugh and carry on...You always had a smile on your face, a blessing in so many ways you were. When Roger met you.. He said, you were the sweetest and kindest neighbor he's ever had... And now the time has come for you to go home to be with Jesus and our Papa God. He needs you now. We will miss you and you will always be a part of our hearts...And we love you.. But we'll see you again soon.. Rejoice Rejoice for the Lord has come to take you home... Always Roger and Cindy
