Heaven gained a talented angel in Jean Day. She was a dear friend of my father, Vernon Whitely, who passed away in 2007. It was wonderful sharing stories and recipes with Jean. And I know that she added joy to my father's life. Sending prayers of comfort to her children as they mourn their loss.Nancy SpicerLehigh Acres, FL
