    TO THE FAMILY OF JEAN, I KNEW JEAN THROUGH MY MOTHER WANDA. THEY SHARED YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP, GOOD TIMES, BAD TIMES AND LAUGHTER. THEY AFFECTIONATELY WOULD REFER TO THEMSELVES AS "THELMA AND LOUISE". IF YOU'VE EVER SEEN THE MOVIE, THELMA AND LOUISE WOULD TAKE OFF ON A WHIRLWIND ADVENTURE AND HAVE A BLAST ESCAPING DANGER AND AMUSING THEMSELVES WITH OUTLANDISH ADVENTURE. WHEN I THINK OF JEAN I REMEMER HER PLEASANT SMILE AND HER CONTAGIOUS LAUGH. SHE WAS A SUPER NICE LADY. IT WAS JUST LAST MONTH THAT MY FAMILY MOVED BACK TO WILMINGTON WITH OUR NOW FOUR CHILDREN. WE HAVE BEEN IN ROCKY POINT FOR SEVERAL YEARS. IN THE PROCESS OF DECORATING MY TWO YEAR OLD DAUGHTERS ROOM I HUNG THIS LITTLE PEWTER DECORATION WITH TWO ANGELS KNEELING AND PRAYING AND A PRISM DANGLING IN THE MIDDLE OF THEM. I HAVE HUNG THIS IN THE WINDOW OF SEVERAL HOMES IN THE PAST SEVEN YEARS. THE ONE THING I THOUGHT WHEN I HUNG IT THIS TIME IS I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HANG ON TO THIS WITH FOUR CHILDREN AND HAVE NEVER LOST A PIECE OF IT (THATS IMPRESSIVE WITH FOUR SMALL CHILDREN). I WILL MAKE AN EXTRA EFFORT TO ALWAYS HANG ON TO IT NOW. IT WAS GIVEN TO ME BY JEAN AT THE BABY SHOWER OF MY FIRST SON EIGHT YEARS AGO. WHEN THE SUN SHINES THROUGH THAT PRISM, I WILL REMEMBER THE SUNLIGHT SHE BROUGHT TO THOSE AROUND HER. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY, JAMIE HARDY
