I am deeply sorry for the loss of Jean. I know that it wasn't altogether sudden but it still hurts. I look forward to being with your whole family at the funeral service for her. What a privilege to have been befriended, loved and cared for by Jean and the Hays family. I have fond memories of eating more homemade dinner rolls than is socially acceptable, playing the piano poorly yet receiving high praise, sitting around after Sunday lunches (in a somewhat "food comatose" state) talking about life and sharing stories and even doing a little babysitting of the 4 delightful kids. One of my funniest memories is of coming over once to babysit and asking if I could make gumbo for the kids' meal that evening. Though I'd SEEN it done many times, I had never actually MADE gumbo by myself (what was I thinking?!?). After browning the roux well and sauteing the vegetables, I added the cold water and was immediately horrified at the gloppy mess that was in the pot. I knew I had ruined my first gumbo. But, alas, the water just needed to heat up so that the roux and the water would mix. After 10 minutes of panic (enough time for the water to heat up), I recovered my confidence and we enjoyed gumbo together (at least I think the kids all enjoyed it). What a delight Jean was to me. She was patient and loving but also firm and full of resolve on important matters. Her countenance radiated the love she had for her Lord like few women I've known. She'll be missed!
