    Jennifer, Cole, and Connie, we are so very sorry about your mother’s death. She was such a fine lady, We always enjoyed talking to her and Mr John. He and Bob always could find plenty of farming plights to talk about. Much love to all the family. Janet and Bob Lindsay

    Jane and John were neighbors to us on 4th Ave. Jane was always so friendly and I enjoyed hearing about her children and grandchildren–she was so proud of all of you.

    Mrs. Jane was a very nice lady whom I enojoyed catching up with when we would pass. She was always sharing a story about some of her family and she was always happy in that. I know she will be missed by each of you because of her dedication to her family. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you . Please celebrate a life well lived and the lasting impression she leaves on each of you and all others she knew.

    I am so sorry to hear about your mothers passing. She always had such a pleasant way about her. I always looked forward to talking to her at the Telephone Co. Pioneers Christmas luncheon each year. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I always admired your Mother as as a strong southern woman who always made our world a better place to live. Her stature and influence on others will long be remembered with love. We at Shiloh especially appreciated the donation of a beautiful Hammond organ (formerly owned by Malcolm Tate) to our church in memory of her family. Sending my sympathy & prayers to you.
