"I don't believe I can say it better than to quote JK: "Sister Jean's unconditional love for all people remains as an example to all of us as we walk on and touch the lives of others. Sister Jean's love will be missed by many." I have often thought about starting a Smooth Jazz concert series at that church. I think now is the time. RIP Saint Jean."

"It is truly amazing to be known by those who never met you personally, but it can only be attributed to the fact that the life you've lived has truly spoken for you.  What Would Jesus Do was more than a cliche.  You put your word's into action.  You are gone but will never be forgotten.  I know that heaven is smiling.  RIP Sister Jean Webster"

"Jean Webster always told the young people who came to volunteer at her kitchen that "my mother taught me that you should never look down on a man unless you are looking down to help him up".  Today, I've heard from a dozen young people who still remember Jean's words.  What our world really needs is more Jean Websters.  Thanks be to God!"

"When I learned of Jean Webster and her story I was amazed by her dedication and selflessness. I, unfortunately, only had the opportunity of meeting her once, but it was such an honor and an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. Her personality shined like the stars in the sky. May she rest in peace."
