Jane Jane as I always called you. I hope you are at peace. You were always ready to make me laugh and one tough girl. Fly high sweet lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
R.I.P Mrs. Jane. I love and miss you already. I wish you would’ve got to meet our daughter. You would’ve loved her as much as you did mason. After I heard about everything, I went and took a shower and couldn’t help but to think of all the things you and I talked about. Some you didn’t remember from the last time. But their was one memory that did last. And that was when mason was pushing you down the hall and acidentally ran you into the wall. You and mason laughed about that for hours. Even though that happened 3 years you still remember that like it happened yesterday. I love you Mrs. Jane. I will see you one day and we’ll reminisce about those times. Until we meet again, you have a good day Mrs. Jane. 🙁
