Jane was always caring and kind. She made the best meatloaf. She had a laugh that I have never forgotten. My last few visits with her in Jacksonville were wonderful. She shared so many family memories. So many details I had forgotten , so many connections clarified. I was so lucky to have her for my aunt.

Patty,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your family, especially your mother, was a special part of my childhood. I remember so many wonderful days at your house, for Girl Scouts or just playing in the backyard by the creek. And your mother was always so kind and welcoming... I'll always remember her special smile. I wish there was more I could do or say ... I hope the good memories, and the love of family and friends, help to soften the grief during this difficult time. Sending hugs...
love,
Mary

Patty, I remember your mom fondly. Croton was a special town in part because of your mom. She was always kind and made us feel special. My condolences for your loss.
