    Momma Jean is a wonderful and spirited lady! I'm so thankful to have had you in my life and being such a proud and loving momma. Jean, you allowed me to be part of your family by having your daughter Trisha as my best friend and watching us grow up together for so many years. Thank you so much for all the great times as well as the rough times we've seen in life. There's no one else that i'd rather have had those with! I love you and Patricia with all my heart! Know that she will be well taken care of and you just enjoy daddy and heaven now!! Huggs and Kisse! Love Tracy, you're other lil girl : )
