    A last goodbye to a dear friend brings tears along with memories of the times we have spent together. I met Jean when I was 10 years old visiting my Aunt Olga and Uncle Jim in Madison during the Christmas Holiday. She was a beautiful girl going out on New Years Eve with boyfriend Kenneth. Many years later our paths crossed again and our new friendship began as we watched over Aunt Olga. That experience brought about many good adventures, lots of fun times and built a lovely relationship that I treasure.
    Jean had many talents and interests: painting, wild flower gardening, exploring nature, camping, traveling and playing games. She made a darn good pecan pie. She had a talent for sewing. You were drawn to her warm circle of family and friends as our visits together become more frequent.
    Right now there seems to be a big empty space where Jean once stood. As family and friends we all feel that. I offer you my sympathy. Watch for the tiny signs of her in the days to come…That little butterfly who shows up unexpectedly.
    God Bless
