    We are so sorry for your loss. Jean was like sunshine when she came to church…..her smile was so beautiful as she was. Your family will be in our prayers. We are in Florida for the winter, but plan to come home for Christmas.

    Lloyd and family, Sandy and I are sorry for your loss. We will be on the way south on Wednesday and will not be able to attend services. I remember clearly the 1961 Friday ritual of fueling Lloyd’s 58 Chevy Impala with propane, and checking the oil for his many trips to see Jean on the weekends. Then we finally were able to meet her just before the wedding when she came to the Frankfort Bottle Gas Christmas dinner that first year. I wish God’s comfort for you in this time of grieving.

    Lloyd, John & Donna, and family…

    We were so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing… She had such a wonderful smile and was fun to be around. We are in Florida, so we will miss the calling and the service, but know that we are thinking of you all.
