Jean has been my dear friend for 44 years. She was the first person to befriend me when I transferred to the Eastern Air Lines reservations office in Atlanta. She was fun, generous, a lovely person. We traveled together and shared her family with her friends. I will miss her but I rejoice with the angels that she is with our Lord.
