  1. I’m glad i got to spend time with you during your last couple of years on this planet. I will never, ever forget the last big life conversation we had during my last visit to washburn, or the second-to-last one on my second-to-last trip up there – it was fun being adults together. Kisses from me and simone, we’ll both miss you grandma jewel(s)

  2. Loved her dearly. Washburn will not be the same without “Grandma Jewell”. She is already missed greatly.
