I was so sad to see in the paper today that Jane has passed away. Although I hadn’t seen her in many years, I have good memories of working with her. She was at Oglesby Realty on Providence Rd., and I worked upstairs in the lawyer’s office. She was always so sweet and kind to me. At that time, there was a very nice group of realtor ladies, all about the same ages if I remember right, and it was a lot of fun working together with them on their closings. I still have a pretty red strawberry spoon rest in my kitchen that Jane gave to me as a Christmas present. I would like to express my sympathy to her family. You were truly blessed to have her! Sincerely,

Your mom was such a sweet lady & so kind & gentle to everyone she knew. She was so loving & visited my mom often when she was shut-in. I know you’re going to miss her, but it’s wonderful to know she’s with the Lord & in no more pain. She always spoke with so much love when speaking about her family.
