To Wayne , Robert and Family,
So sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. She will be missed by her friends from Harvest. You were always quite the fashionable dresser and enjoyed shopping at the clothing sales we had during the year. I always will remember the enjoyment you received from watching Blue Sky during Happy Hour. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
