My deepest sympathies to your family Daniel. I'm very sorry I was not able to attend the service today. Auntie Rejane will always have a special place in my heart. She was a big part of my life when I was little and I have happy memories growing up next door. She taught me how to sew and make little blankets and clothes for my dolls. She was also the only adult in my life with enough patience to teach me how to play cribbage. She took the time to make me lots of things growing up like mittens in the winter and stuffed animal kitties which I still have and cherish. I'll carry her my heart and thoughts always.
