Jolene's Family - My mother, Charlene Bone, and Jolene were great friends as all of us kids grew up. Mother always got such a kick out of Jolene and her sense of humor. She had so much energy and cheered Mother up on so many occasions. When Jolene would visit, us kids would stick close just to hear the stories she would tell. She was a great friend and we were and still are thankful that she was in all of our lives. I pray that her and Mother are holding hands and laughing one of those good old belly laughs just like back in the day. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
