Mrs. Jean Highfill was like a 2nd mom to me since I was 4 years old growing up across the street from her. She loved me like I was one of her own children. She had such a sweet loving spirit who was very giving to so many, an excellent cook, loved to laugh, an excellent mother, always welcoming, and showed everyone the love of God. God really blessed me by her example in so many ways, and I am so grateful!
