We are so very sorry on the passing if Mrs. Jane. Throughout my life she has been one of the kindest most generous people I have ever been acquainted. She is at Peace now and rejoicing with the Lord she has served her entire life. Proverbs 31: 10-31 certainly applies to her as it did to my mother. Lee, Carol, Joseph, and Amelia
