Mary Jane and family,
I send my sympathy to you in the loss of your Mom. I remember her well, always with something good to say about someone. I know the loss you are experiencing, since I just lost my Mom last week. It is a very hard thing to accept, our only consolation is that they are no longer in pain, and have crossed over to the better side and are with our Dear Lord. That is the goal for all of us. Take one day at a time, and God will see you through this.

Mary Jane and families,
Sorry for your loss. Always looked forward to her smile and wave when we would walk past and your mother was sitting on the porch, or when I saw her out in the stores. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
