I’ve only met Jean a few times but from Billie Jo talking about her I feel like I knew a lot more. Billie Joe and family I wish we were near to hug you Phil and the girls. We are working on that. It’s not easy loosing a parent especially One you were so close too. You all have our sympathies and love.
