May God send comfort Crickette and Ford. Aunt Jean was a huge role model for me. I will always remember her as she was and am thankful for her influence in my life. May she Rest In Peace as she joins the rest of her family in heaven. Much love.

I am heart-broken!  Aunt Jean’s smile is unforgettable!—and so contagious!  She was joyful and cheery. As I was a child she filled my imagination with wonders of traveling and what it could be like as a modern woman., she was “That Girl”. She is the strongest woman I ever knew. She had dignity up to her last day. I will always love her and will forever miss her. My sympathies to Uncle Ford and Aunt Crickett. May your memories bring comfort to your broken hearts.

I will forever and always miss my beautiful Aunt. I thought of her as a "modern day Barbie." Independent, smart, happy. I love you so.
Thanks for having that talk with God for me and my family!
I know you had to go and I didn't want you to suffer any longer, but I have an empty spot in my heart. I hold your love and memories in my soul, until we meet again. I'll take it to the limit, one more time, for the Barbies and dreamers.
