On January 12, 2017, after a long, protracted illness, my wife Jean passed from this world to her eternal home in glory. She died one week short of her 69th birthday. We had just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary on Jan. 5th. A memorial service will be held in her honor this Saturday, Jan. 28, at 2 pm. at the Guardian Funeral Home, 5922 Crosstown, Corpus Christie, Texas.
