I just heard about the passing of your Mom. Needless to say, I was very saddened by the news and sorry that I was not able to attend the service. It was so many years ago that I was a constant visitor to your house and I also felt very comfortable and welcomed whenever I was there. Your Mom was a special person and please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, your dad, and sister.

She was such a lovely lady...so kind, and had a great laugh! Especially when she and Louie did the "rug trick". I guess I better explain that. They were "jitterbugging" in the living room and their feet got tangled up in the throw rug and down they went...laughing and laughing. One of my favorite memories! Boyertown won't be the same without her.

Jane is my Aunt Jane, loving wife of my Dad's brother, my Uncle Louie. Aunt Jane was a large part of my childhood. I saw her more frequently then as her children Barbara and Mark and our other Boyertown cousins were close as children, and played together frequently. She was such a fixture in her home and always so kind and attentive to Uncle Louie's parents, my Grandmom and Grandpop who lived with them. I will always carry very fond memories of Aunt Jane. My prayers are for her and for Uncle Louie, Barbara, Mark and their families that God will show them the path to understand and bear the pain of her earthly loss.
