I emailed with Jean from 2009 until sometime in 2012 due to her health issues. I first met Jean at the 2011 Annual Virginia CURE conference in
VA as she was unable to attend the 2010 conference
in where I was a speaker. Norfolk, VA
She was a great advocate and a very special person, she will be greatly missed.
