Sara jane and my mother, Margaret Skinner were life long friends. There are some old film reels recording our families merrily playing together in Old Cape May. Sara jane had a wonderful happy strong cheerful spirit. She was devoted to her family, especially to her loving son. Billy. Her beliefs in God, Country and Family are carried forward by her friends and family. Sara jane loved people and animals. Her happy positive nature made it so much fun to be around her. I will never forget my loving Aunt Jane.

It is extremely difficult to try to summarize such a loving friend to me, my family and especially to my late mother, Margaret Skinner. SaraJane and my mother had a very special bond during their lifetimes. They all laughed together, visited one another's families, loved each other's pets, grew up together during their childhood summers at the beach, hotels, dances, cocktails on our porch and in their homes. They traveled through life together; good times and bad - always there for one another. These friendships are like diamonds...forever sparkling in our hearts and memories. SaraJane held both innocent wonder, faith in God and devotion both to her family and closest friends. How I wish there could have been one more visit, one more beautiful smile and happy laughter. My sister and I will always cherish our happy times, remember her earnest generosity and happy loving spirit, till we may all meet again. We share Bill and Betsy's sorrow with such a heartfelt loss. With deepest sympathy, Barbara and Janet Skinner
