Jean's life and love will endure...as long as her memory exists, her name is remembered, and a tree shall live. I will cherish our little bits of wit and wisdom as long as I also live.

Doug, it is with a heavy heart that I am writing this to you.  I don't get to see you much anymore but wanted to reach out and express my sympathy.  I was blessed getting to know Jean during our fun times on the Winefest committe - she was always so patient with our crazy antics!  God Bless you and Bri.
