So sorry to hear about the passing of our dear cousin, Jean Ellen.
We spent a lot of time with her when she came to live in Greenville in 1990.
We had many fond memories of her at all of the Ripley Reunions. She loved her mom and daddy!
I am so glad they are all reunited again in heaven. RIP Jean Ellen.

I just want to thank everyone in the area who loved and cared for Jean, Jean Ellen, and J.W. while they were living, especially those who assisted in the care of Jean and Jean Ellen in their last years in Middlesex. Our family really, really does appreciate everything that was done for them and we couldn't have taken appropriate care of them without all of you.
