I send my condolences to Walter, Debra, George, and all of Jean's loved ones. For me she modeled the Christian walk, and thus I consider her my spiritual mother. After losing touch for many years, for a time I was reunited with her and Walter in Florida, and am grateful for that brief reconnection. The last time I saw Jean she kindly and graciously took my then three-year-old by the hand and showed her how to pick oranges from the trees in their backyard.
After coming across this obituary I have been trying to remember everything she said and did in my presence, and all of it emanates with her boundless compassion, patience, and wisdom. She is one of those rare people who seek higher truth and thereby edify those who are blessed by her presence. I am glad to have been one of them, and pray that God Who comforts those who mourn will be with Walter and her children and family.
