I have known Mary Jane for most of my life and know that she is in heaven with the lord now. She has suffered for much of her adult life and now is at peace. God Bless Roger for the faithful, loyal husband he has been through these difficult years of her failing health. The Mary Jane that I will keep in my heart was a fun loving, music loving, energetic, great friend to many that I grew up with. She can now be reunited with her parents (Calvin and Jane)up in heaven. Roger, our family will always be there when you need a friend.

Mary Jane and I played together as children. She was always so sweet. I have very fond memories of going to her tenth birthday. It was the first birthday party I attended. God bless you Mary Jane.

God called Mary Jane home and has placed her amongst loved ones that have gone on before her. She is at peace now, free from the disease that kept her bound here on earth. May you find peace in the knowledge that her spirit lives on....May the Lord bless and comfort you during this difficult time....
