    Please accept my sincere condolences in the loss of Jean. She was one of my favorite people to visit on my ex-husband’s side of the family. She was always wonderful whenever we stayed at her house. I always had a good time and she was a blast to talk to. I know you all are going to miss her. It’s nice to know she’s back with Uncle Bill again!

    Sending my sympathy your way. I knew of Bill and Jean because of working with Roger Garrett years ago in McPherson Kansas. I always heard good things about them!! It’s hard to loose parents but you kids have each other and lots of memories to share many times over! I am sure Bill welcomed her with open arms!

    Jean’s desire to remain active by taking neighborhood walks and working in her yard was quite impressive. I enjoyed our visits on her front deck – what a sweet lady! RIP dear friend.

    I was so fortunate to see Jean just two weeks ago when she visited Weaver’s again. She had the usual same beautiful smile and was so warm and gracious. A classy Lady who made a great partner with her guy Bill.
