Janie, we sure did enjoy our shopping trips. Remember the time you were here with Charlie and I and we went to the national catalog sale and bought all those bedroom slippers, the "happy feet" ones. That is a favorite memory for me. I will miss you dearly and love you so much. I know you are shouting and enjoying heaven. Won't be long and we will see each other again. In the meantime paint some beautiful sunrises for me. Love you girl, Judy your wild sister in law

We will miss our wonderful cousin, Jane. I talked with her since Christmas and she told me that she loved her cousins and she was looking forward to the Fletcher Family Reunion on April 29, 2017. She has been called home and we will see her again in heaven. Condolences to her family.
From her cousin
