I'm so glad that we were able to make it to Richmond to say goodbye today.  There are so many memories growing up as cousins in Indiana and Kentucky.  I'm so sad to see her leave this life so soon.  I loved the message and service today and will always think of Jolene when I read Romans 8:23.  Glad bless and it will be soon when we shall see her again.

Jenny, Randy, and family,
Sorry for the loss of your sister.  Comfort will come just knowing that God has His arms around Jolene now and that he has a plan for her in heaven now that her job here on earth is complete.  Memories will help you get through this rough time and remember I am here to talk.
