My thoughts and prayers are with all of Jean's family. I have known Jean since I taught her in 2nd grade, and I was privileged to teach 2 of her children also. May God bless the entire Prickett and Brown families as you mourn the loss of such a wonderful lady.

Such a beautiful caring compassionate person. I am devastated to hear of her passing. She always had time to stop and have a short visit. I will miss her smile and sweet disposition...she was never too busy to stop and listen to what others had to say. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. She will dearly be missed.
