Dear Kathy ,Jennifer & Family,
I loved Jane like a little sister for over forty years. I’ll always treasure the joy of your Mama’s friendship & her bubbly laughing.
Know your miss her more than words can ever explain, but she’s in Jesus arms & heavens her sweet resting place. She was so looking forward to seeing her Daddy, Mama & James. She will be resting from our worlds trials & woes forever.
Just be known to each of you, she loved you since before you were born.
Much love, tears, hugs & sweet memories,
Lucille & Charles Ward
