We will surely miss our Aunt Jayne who was always interested in our lives. She was a loving mother and grandmother and brought so much joy to all of us.

Dear Tom and family, My sincere sympathy to you on the loss of Jayne. I always admired her, and found her to be a happy and loving woman. A wonderful role model for me in my younger years. She loved to serve God through her service to others. She was very talented in many ways and made a delicious apple crisp for the Harvest Fair every year! God must be delighted to welcome her home. I pray for comfort for you as you say good-bye to someone loved so much. She will remain in your heart always. Fondly, Heidi Sia, Medway Community Church
