Jean was a really special woman. She was very generous and very supportive the 10 years I served with her as pastor. Please know she is very much love by our family.
I was saddened to here of Mrs. Moore’s passing.My Dad and I had the pleasure of hunting her family farm for the last 30+ years as members of Triangle Wildlife Hunting Club.She always seemed very kind and sweet every time I saw her over the years.Mrs. Moore and her family will never know how much of a positive influence
it has been for me(and many others)to have had the opportunity to spend time in
the outdoors with the ones we love.This is a bittersweet
moment for me since my Dad passed away in January of this year.God Bless You All and I’m sure heaven is a sweeter place with Mrs. Jean there.Thank You, Dane Piper
