AKA "The Mayor" will remain in my heart forever. That little sassy redhead was 10 foot tall and bulletproof when she wanted to be, but hidden beneath that bulletproof exterior was a sweet kind beautiful woman with a big heart. I could always depend on Jean for good sound advice, good company, good laughs and good times. I will miss her so much, but I know she'll be watching over us. Heaven is rocking one awesome angel right now!
