Oh, how many memories that we all have!!! I, myself, spent many hours in the Noel kitchen, talking with Jean and Junie about life, etc. The fence being torn down the days after we moved in next door to make a BIG playing field for baseball, kickball, etc. I know that those memories will help me to accept this new adjustment to life without Jean and I pray that you all will stay close and relive those times through each other and the grandchildren. Jeannie, a life well you!!! May God keep you in His loving hands and much love, thoughts and prayers. Susie
