Kenneth, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Jean will always be a pleasant memory, as you are also. I am in very bad health and will not be able to attend a service. But know that I will be thinking of you all. I know the hurt, but if you will ask the Lord to take the hurt but leave the memories he will. Love & Prayers, Roger Bradley

Oh, dear Ken! I know there’s nothing I can say right now to make things better, but I also know that having someone to talk to at times like this is really important, so don’t hesitate to call me whenever. The glow of Jean's goodness always remains to give light to your path. Holding you in my heart and thoughts.
