She was one of the most beautiful souls, I was privileged to call her my friend. She literally changed my life, my heart, my outlook on life through her unwavering kindness toward everyone she met. She made me want to be a better person by just being around her, she was a true testament of her faith through her words and action. She raised 4 sons who loved and respected their parents, a beautiful example of what family unity and love should always be. One of Jeans many gifts was being a master gardener through Gods grace it all came naturally, walking through her flower garden was like walking in a sanctuary. She knew every name of every flower in every season. I celebrate my friends life, she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
