I remember when we were kids and you came to visit Mama Shook with your family and the hijinks you and Edwin got up to like the time you jumped on Dads horse and he stood shock still because of all the petticoats and they said it was a wonder you didn't get bucked off cause no one rode him but Dad. As we grew up we were busy with our own lives and kids but I thought of you from time to time and when we did get together for reunions and other occasions it was always good to see you. You will be missed by the ones you leave behind. may God comfort your husband Darryl and your children and Sally and Ed and I will hold them in our prayers.

Jane,
We shared a lot of laughs and fun at the LB&J for many years. We shared our love of Jesus together at church too. You have a special place in my heart as you also played at my wedding many years ago. The world will miss you but heaven rejoices to have your beautiful voice. Prayers to your family during this time.
