Our Sincere Condolences
Jolene was such a special lady. I have known her most of my life and will miss her greatly. I loved working for her at Blue Highway and learned much from her. Not just about the business, but also about life. She was always giving me great advice. I will miss her hugs and her loving ways. I know she is in the arms of Jesus and she and Randall are having a wonderful time together once again! Our prayers are with her family.
