Mamaw Jane
So many beautiful words could describe her! She was a mamaw to so many! A true heart of gold. An angel. I always saw nothing but love, compassion, and strength from her! She is joining hands with many of our loved ones in Heaven. Having brunches at your apartment, family picnics at the shelter, and listening to you play your music will stay in my heart forever. Until we meet again. I love you mamaw.

She was Mary Jane and I was Mary Susan. Mary Jane was the closest thing to an AngeI have ever known. She was full of strength and understanding. She was a natural giver. I have leaned on her and been blessed just to sit by her. Good times and bad times she showed me nothing but compassion and love. Took my kids to church.. Encouraged me to be a better person. Picnics at the park and Sunday dinners. Always had a cake in the oven or a bag of cookies ready to pass out treats. She worked hard all her life and was a blessing to all.
