Dear Gary,
Jewell was such a lovely, gracious lady. It was a pleasure to know her.
I was so impressed with her life story when she let me interview her.
We will miss her!
Thinking of you at this sad time.
Peace, from Phyllis and Jerry

Heartfelt sympathy to you, Gary. Your Mom was a lovely lady. I will forever picture her at one of the sewing machines in Zion's Fellowship Hall. Her work was amazing. She was able to choose just the right fabric for the adjoining squares as she assembled the quilt and lap robe tops. Her knitted baby booties and caps were so sweet.
Prayers for you as you move forward.
