We met Jewell 3 1/2 years ago when we bought the house across the street from her. Though we only knew her for a short period of time, she became like family to us. We had so many wonderful visits together. She was afraid of bad weather and whenever it stormed, she would always come over to sit with us til it passed. She even spent a few nights with us when the weather was bad. We were always so glad to have her with us. Though she hasn't spent time in her home for a while, we will miss her terribly. Wayne and I will love her always.
