I have fond memories of Jerald and Jane. I never realized Jane was from this part of the country (MO) until the late 80's when Jerald and Jane came to visit Buddy and me here at Bakersfield, MO. They brought Aunt Nova with them, and had been to the Free Union cemetery, where Jane said her parents were buried. Goes to show you it is a small world. So sorry to hear of your Moms passing Gerold and Harold. She was a dear lady. Thoughts and prayers for all the family. Have many special memories of times spent with your Mom and Dad.

Garold and Harold and Families..We're sending our deepest sympathy upon the loss of your Mother, Mary Jane. My parents, Norris/Ivene Cozort, and I will keep each one of you in our daily prayers/thoughts. May God encourage, support, and strengthen each one of you during this difficult time. I knew your Father/Mother thru my Great Aunt Nova(Nova Gault). I have very fond memories of the both of them when we visited with them at Aunt Nova's house in Salem, AR. Your parents always looked forward to seeing and visting with my parents, my sister, and I. She loved all of you very much and always talked in her letters to me about the excellent care/concern you all had for her while she was living there in Fort Smith. We will miss her too! Our deepest sympathy and In Christian Love, Norris/Ivene Cozort, Amber(Cozort) Redburn.
