Missing my friend

I would like to pay tribute and dedicate this column to the late Jean McManus.
I first met Ms. Jean, I’m guessing, in 2008 here at work. Ms. Jean had dropped by The Eunice News. I cannot recall the reason why she popped in, but I’m thinking it was to speak to our editor. And, If I can remember correctly, it was not to criticize, or complain about the newspaper, for her visit. She normally had compliments for The Eunice News.
