  3. I have missed Jean so much this past year. Every morning at the office she would give me a big hug and say such uplifting comments. I knew right away from her Godly spirit that she was a Christian, and I know I will see her again one day. I will continue to miss this wonderful woman, but I know she is now without pain and in a much better place.

  11. Mrs Shorter holds a special place in my heart. She will be remembered as a kind lady with a big smile and infectious laugh. I was a teenager when I began going to SBBC. She was the ‘mother hen’ who made feel right at home. She was always looking out for all the kids, treating them as good as her own grandchildren. When I graduated from High School in 1991, she came to my house bearing gifts. She brought me towels for college and a big plastic tool box that held the basics (screwdrivers, hammer, etc.) I am almost 30 and I still use the infamous tool box. One of the best gifts I have ever received. Mrs. Shorter wanted to make sure I was equiped to start my life away from home. She had the best sense of humor and a smile that will light up heaven.

    I was so sorry to hear about Jean. I was thinking about her recently. Did not know she was ill. We had a lot of good times together when she was an Extension Homemaker. She was a great gal.
    May God be with you during this time. God loves you. My prayers are with you.
