    Jean has been my friend and constant companion over the past three years, though is seems we were friends for a lifetime. I will miss our long talks and numerous phone calls. We shared all out laughter and all our tears. I had watched my friends health slowly slip away over this last year. Gone were the many days that we slipped away to Ryans for lunch or sat for hours on the porch talking about the kids or years gone by. I would go in a see her in her bed, she would be sleeping or maybe playing with her computer, but she was losing the will to get up and walk, and even the ability to sit alone.. I knew the time was growing closer that she would bid farewell to this old earth and take her place in the heavens above.
    That is were you are today dear friend. You are not confused or disoriented. Gone are the crutches and electric wheel chair ( which you teased about being a race car) No more joint pain, no more sickness. Now you are young again and dancing a jig. Laughing an talking and making new friends.

    Jean wouldn’t want us to cry, she would want us to celebrate her life. We never went anywhere that she didn’t see someone she knew and that person would throw their arms around her, give her a big hug and a great big smile. She was loved by so many.

    She could be so funny and even unpredictable. Here she was, always smiling and sweet around me. One night we were driving down on main and a car full of young male jerks kept pulling up on my bumper and honking and racing the engine of their car. I was a little frightened, but low and behold, all of a sudden Jean was holding a crutch out the window and saying things that I had no idea she ever thought of. The car spun around a corner and took off out of site. She slowly pulled the crutch back in the window, lit a cigarette, looked at me and we both fell into a hysterical fit of laughter.

    Oh yes, Miss Jean I will miss you so much. But I will be seeing you again. I love you. Your friend. Claudia
