Duane...Becky told me you came in the restaurant today.She also told me about Jean. I'm so sorry for all of you. Jean was just a very special person. My love and prayers go out to your family. Anna Olde Orchard

Hi DAvid
I am very sorry to hear about Jean. I saw your dad at the caferia today. i was in Tulsa helping my mother when Jean died. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Sally Selvidge

As a new road rep in 1990, it didn't take me long to realize that Jean and Duane and David were an oasis of geniune hospitality, kindness and caring. I always admired the way those qualities were the foundation of our meetings. That's just the way i want to live my life and they were a model for me. My heart goes out to Duane and David and i know heaven is having a big celebration for the return of one of their own.

So sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you, Duane, David and the rest of your family. Jean was an awesome woman and I would seek her out for her wisdom and knowledge and for Duane's jokes. I am so happy I had an opportunity to know her. May God continue to bless you all.

I was saddened to hear of your loss. Jean was a very kind and loving person and she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort. As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Jean was an amazing Christian woman full of hospitality. Christmas Eve, 1985, Jean invited me to her home for Christmas dinner. She had never seen me before that day. She noticed that I was sad and she was full of compassion. My teenager daughter and I went to her holiday dinner. She made my Christmas so special. Later, I saw her often when she had her book store at Church of the Servant. She was so sweet and caring. The world is a better place because of her. I will always remember...

Jean has known my sister, Jeanene and I since we were little girls growing up in First Christian Church beginning at 10th and Robinson. Even after we moved away after college we would go by the book store on visits home to see her. Then we became closer in the last 11 years I have been back in OKC. I will miss the regular phone calls and knowing I could call and ask her a question about a recipe or a health question---whatever! Thank you God for the Christian witness! Michelle
