Phil and I were so sad to hear about Jane's death. We were honored to call Jane and Buddy our friends through the years. We had some good times together at The Castle with our Sunday School Class at Mt. Olive.
We are praying God's peace for your family at this time.

I will miss her many kindnesses. I know your hearts are breaking and I so feel for you. Loved your dad too but, sadly, when he passed I didn't know I could leave a message like this.
