Although in recent years our crazy schedules (including taking care of our husbands)know kept us from talking or doing lunch as often as we'd have liked, when we did connect, it was always as if no time had passed. You and I totally understood one another's situations, so that was okay. We sure did have some fun times back when "the girls" got together at one another's homes each month for bingo, as well as family/friends picnics and parties. I will cherish all the memories, and most of all will remember you as one of the most loving, caring, non-judgmental people I have ever known. Praying for your beloved Pete and family. Janie

Sending love to all of your family. Mary Jane and I took so many walks together around our neighborhood. She was a wonderful person and such a loving spirit. May her memory be eternal.
