  4. Marie Birch says:

    Jean was one of the best Christian ladies I had ever known. She lived her Christian beliefs and was not ashamed to witness of God’s goodness to her and her family. For many years she and Raymond were what we called the “backbone” of Calvary Baptist Church and all of our church is sadden to learn of her death, but rejoice that she is now with Jesus as she wished to be. I extend my love to her family.

  5. Johnny & Jean Ellis says:

    Lain Family, Just a note to tell you what a wonderful Mother you had . She was a willing worker in our church for years and always your best friend. We have missed her here in Artesia, but we will meet again In Heaven
