Not sure what to say?

Mrs Spencer was my next door neighbor in Gloucester City for many years. She was the best. I miss her now more than usual. God bless her.

I feel very very bless for having a wonderful sister in Jane.Will miss all the good times we shared together.

Sister Jane was the senior personality of the family to all that had the pleasure of knowing her. The loss of such a person leaves beautiful memories to cherish and reflect on as those dear to her struggle to contain their grief. My sisters remind me that truth, beauty, goodness and love do exist in this world. Each person grieves in different ways for different lengths of time. We are each on our unique journey and because of Janes unique relationship with everyone we can say;...

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. Mrs. Spencer was one of the sweetest people we have ever meet. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. She'll be greatly missed
