Jean loved all things bright and colorful. At her memorial service, the choir sang “On Eagles Wings” which was very special to her. This summer a friend and I were on top of Grouse Mountain, the highest point in Mueller State Park, when a beautiful Golden Eagle came flying and gliding very close to where we were. I couldn’t help but smile and feel that she was there keeping watch over all of us that she left behind. The memory of that hymn and that eagle will stay with me for a very long time.
