The family requests that people wishing to bless the family with food or flowers, instead make a donation to the Texas Boys Ranch or to the charity of their choice.

"Jean and I were friends for many many years, from the time they moved to Eldorado. We kept in touch off and on for more than 60 years and shared many times..." Donna Beth McCormick (Austin)
