Karen and Sandy, Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with you and all the family. Mary Jane was a very good friend of mine all through grade school and high school; we both belonged to a clabber club for years until Harry and I with our children moved to Muncie, IN. We had birthdays just five days apart and kept in contact through the years until Mary Jane's illness probably kept her from corresponding. I have wonderful memories of her. God bless you. Harry and Rosalie (Loehr) Metzger
