I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Prayers for the entire family. Mr. Virgil Rainey was my Ag teacher in high school at Jenkins County. We were fortunate to get to meet Ms. Jean several times. Prayers for you all during this difficult time.

I am so, so sorry for your loss. As I read about Ms. Jean, I also relived precious memories of years ago of time spent with her at her house. She always made me feel like family and so loved. I pray for comfort and ease for you all and hope you know I am here for you. The loss of a mother is so much to carry, but I am here. Much love to you all
