Orcutt Church has lost another wonderful Weaver to heaven. The world's loss is now heaven's gain. Jean was a faithful member and we have missed her since her illness. My thoughts and prayers are with the family but I know that they are all relieved that she is no longer suffering.

  To Stephanie and the entire Overman family, On behalf of my family and my mom, as Ms. Jean always would say where is Bea, whom we had the privilege of knowing as being a caregiver for her for over 4 years. Jean had become to be a part of us and she surely will be missed and remembered. We have enjoyed so many treasured memories of Ms. Jean. Stephanie and Allen, we know that you have been there thru the thick and thin, but God said He will never put more on you than you can bear, so continue to be faithful at what you always do, and God will continue to bless and keep you. We send our prayers, love, and support during this time of sadness, but if Jean was here she would say, Don't cry for me, rejoice, there is no more pain no more worry, no more sorrow; I'm going to a better place, a place where we all are striving to get to, so be encouraged.
From the family of Beatrice Patterson and Linda Dove, caretakers of Jean Overman

To the Family of Jean. I will dearly miss my neighbor, she was a delightful and funny lady during the times we had conversations. Jean and I began our friendship and respect as neighbors after a snowfall. When we both were cleaning our driveways and I assisted her. We both looked out for each other and always had kind words to say. "Jean, you are with all of those you dearly missed and those you left behind will dearly miss you, until you greet them at the gate." Darryl Vaughan (Hampton)

To Stephanie and Family:
We just learned this morning about Jean's passing. David and I loved her. She was so much fun to be around and loved having company. We visited her many times over the years after she became sick. She was a wonderful wife, sister, and friend who will truly be missed. It was a pleasure to call her "friend." By now everyone in heaven is laughing and dancing with Jean.

Shall We Gather at the River

Words and Music by Rev. Robert Lowry (1826-1899)
 

 Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod;
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Chorus

Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will walk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.

Chorus

Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.

Chorus

Soon we'll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.

Chorus
