I’m so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. I enjoyed getting to know Jean and loved the look on her face when I called her “Trouble.” We enjoyed visiting you both in Texas. The grapefruit pie was wonderful and Ginny makes it to this day. I’ll think of her every time we use the blanket she gave us. Thank God for giving you such a wonderful companion.
