I just heard about the passing of Jean. I was the youth pastor at First Baptist from 87-93. I have great memories of Gene and Cecil. I always got a big hug from Gene and they both were such a blessing to us. They were a special couple that made an impact on my life.

I am very sorry to hear about your mother's passing she was a great person inside and out. I will always remember your parents and how good they were to my family and I. I've known Mrs. J. Since I was 13. Praying for all of you. I'll share this news with my Grandma Ethel, her friend.
