    Rest in Peace, Jean. You are in the hands of the Lord now, where you will live in eternity. Dance with my mother when you get a chance…. Jean was such a good friend to my mother, Donna Graves, and I will remember both Jean and Dick for their longtime friendship with our parents and with all our family. Jean will never be forgotten.

    Loved both Dick and Jean! They were such wonderful friends to my parents, Gerry and Donna Graves. Their evenings out and weekend getaways in my dad’s healthier years were something my parents treasured and needed in such a crazy and hectic time in their lives. I would like to think they are up there rekindling some of thst right now. My prayers and condolences to the family and Jim as you grieve her loss. She will surely be missed but left her imprint on all those she came in contact with.
