Hope this gets in...longest time your voice is back!

We ate together two nights before she died. I brought her Homegrown fried chicken, cheesy grits and sesame ginger greens. She ate voraciously. Her mind was as bright as ever.
We were planning a trip to the beach a couple of weeks later. She was already putting things in the cooler in her kitchen preparing for our trip. We were having such fun planning that vacation of beach walking and story telling. I miss Jean so much.

I am so sorry to hear this. She was a very talented artist.

She was one of a kind. I'm sorry she's gone.

Jean was unique and had such a lovely spirit. She is truly missed.

Marcia, I am so very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, I still remember fondly the time I went with you to visit her and had such a fun time. My prayers are with you and your family.

Since our first meeting at High Tea on Wall Street, back in the day', I have found Jean to be a fascinating person and a most gifted artist. She, like her art, leaves a lasting impact.

Sad to hear of your passing, I enjoyed our time at the beach, and our Facebook conversations. Rest in Peace my friend.

Thank you for your friendship from Reidsville to the present and for your encouragement. I will miss you but wish you a peaceful rest as you ready for what's next in eternity.
