Your mom was so kind. Your house was like a second home for me during high school years, and your mom never blinked at having an extra kid or two around. May she rest in love and peace.

Its was a sad day for me, when I learned on Facebook, that Mary Jane had passed away - She was a good friend of my sister Joanne Williams who passed away in Wisconsin two years ago - We lived on neighboring farms in Marengo - We use to ride our horses together when we were kids - I am a retired Air Force guy, 88 years old, now living in Okinawa, Japan - I can tell you for sure, she was one of the nicest, sweetest and smartest girls in Marengo - I went to school with Rich and they had a wonderful family - May she rest in peace and I will remember her in my prayers - God Bless Her Wonderful Family -
