Curry, Betty Jean's Guestbook

Oh how we miss our dear, cherished friend Jean whose friendship has blessed us all since the early 80s when we worked together at Whisker Rivey's restaurant. Her passing leaves a hole in our lives and a whole lot of love in our hearts! There are not enough positive adjectives to describe our fantastic lifetime friend. Brave, compassionate, gentle, humorous, kind, selfless, smart and strong would be just a few. We know that one day we will continue our laughs & love and be together forever in a joyful reunion. Meantime we hold Jean tightly in our hearts and pray for peace for Trell (Bill) & her wonderful family (and friends) who meant the world to her.

Carol & Tom

Cant believe she gone will always remember her and love pinky

Bill, I'm so sorry to hear of Jean's passing. She was a wonderful woman who I was so Blessed to know over the years. We stayed in touch after Carol left us for awhile but I lost touch with her over recent years. I kept track of her life through Melisa. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sunny

Bill I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother Jean was a very dear friend. I can still remember when you & her visited Riverstone before making it her home. I was honored to coordinate any of her requests. I respected our chats, she was motivating & loving. I wish I could of held her hands one last time. You & your family are in my prayers. Mom is now on my daily prayer listing. Be safe. Esther Tuggle

My sympathy to Bill and the family. So saddened to hear of Jean's passing. Jean was a wonderful sweet lady with a great smile and warmth. We worked together at Allen Markings a very efficient lady. We had so much fun at the casino she was always very lucky. I will cherish the memories as I am sure Bill and the family will to. Big Hug!

Bill, Joyce and I were so very sorry to read of your Mothers passing! No matter how prepared you think you are for this event, it comes as a horrible shock! To lose the one who birthed you, nursed you, whipped away your tears and always supported you in all your endeavors is a terrible loss that can only be eased by time and loved ones support. If there is anything we can help you and your family with, don’t hesitate to call. Our prayers go out to you and your family, Ron & Joyce

Ron and Joyce Cox

My sincerest sympathy to Jean's family. She will be remembered as one of the kindest and sweetest persons I've met. She was a dear friend to all us "Whisker's" girls and will forever be in our hearts. We will miss you, dear friend.
