  • Maryjane,
    We will always remember your Mother’s Love and thoughtfulness. When Elizabeth was just a little girl with chickenpox over the Holidays I remember the 3 of you bringing her the large rag doll to make her smile. She could hardly pick it up. Your Mother always remembered my love of the peanut butter fudge. She is now with the angels who love her too. Deb
