I want to send my condelences to all of the family. Jewel was a very special lady and a second mom to me growing up as her neighborhood boy across the street. So Sorry I was not able to make the service. I have many great memories with all you siblings growing up. My Mom also send some her best wishes as well. I know it is so hard to lose a parent especially at this time of year. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
