Jean Walker is one of those people that God chose to bless us with to make life that much better here in North Louisiana.

Grab a Kleenex before you read her nomination letter from her daughter, Tammy Thompson, because you'll need it. But once you've read this story of love, you'll understand just how easy it was for us to recognize Jean as this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award.

I'd like to nominate my mom for the Caught in the act award.... Mrs Jean Walker from Cotton Valley. She and my dad adopted me when I was 2 1/2 years old. I was severely burned at age 5 and my mom stayed by my side at the hospital for every surgery and hospitalization I ever had (58 burn related surgeries and 5 non-burn related surgeries). I witnessed too many kids going through surgeries alone. She has the biggest heart of anyone I know. I've watched her over the years when she worked in the school cafeteria paying for lunches for kids that had no money. She also bought patches for high school athletes letterman jackets whose family couldn't afford them. Not long ago a couple moved to town in need of furniture so she gave them practically a new bed out of her home. These are just a few examples of what love she has for others. She is always doing for others and never wants reco gnition. I'm so proud to be able to call her mom.

Jean Walker, thank you for being one of the biggest reasons why this is the greatest place in America to live!

And because you've been "Caught in the Act" the gang at Silver Star Steak House and Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner on them!

Take a listen to the phone call we made to Jean to let her know that she was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
