Mary Jane it was a great honor that you loved me and trusted me to take care of you for the two weeks prior to your passing. We laughed, cried and prayed together, so I know you are in heaven and we will see you again. Applewood Circle won't be the same without you and Smokey, we will miss seeing him take you for a walk. The bond between you two was amazing and it really came through towards the end, he hovered over you. He knew mommy was sick. MJ I miss you so much and love you. RIP, fly high my friend.

Mary Jane was like a sister to me. We did everything together, she was my “Best Friend “ and I will Miss her forever! She was kind and would give you the shirt off her back, she was always there to help. She also Loved her cat Smokey, he was her buddy, you could find her walking him on a leach at least 5 times a day around Applewood. MJ, you and Smokey will be greatly Missed as members of the “Applewood Gang”. Rest In Peace in Jesus’s arms my dear friend . I Love You!
