I am so sorry to hear about Elizabeth's passing. She was a good, good friend. I still have and wear some jewelry she gave me for my birthday many years ago. Elizabeth was a wonderful lady. With deepest sympathy, Gertrude Burrow

Mrs. Jahn was an old friend and neighbor to my family on Page Street in Hallettsville for years. I will always remember her smiling face, her sense of humor and her caring personality. She was truly a jewel to know and love and I will miss her so.
