Randy, Mike and Kim and the rest of the family, We were so sorry to hear about Jean. We loved that lady so much. We had a lot of laughs together. Phil loved working with her when he was music director at Pine Forest and our friendship continued for many years thereafter. She was one of a kind for sure and was a hoot!! A bigger heart you could not find. We will always cherish our friendship. Our prayers are with each of you, that you will each feel the loving arms of our Lord wrapped tightly around all of you.

Randy, I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I remember her with great fondness during our high school years and her talent for playing and teaching piano is remembered by anyone who ever heard her play. Praying for peace and comfort for you and the rest of your family.
