I just heard Jane died. She was my mother’s very best friend (Flora Lengfelder). As a young child our families would gather often. I am sending my condolences to you Jim and Mary and remembering many years ago when my brother Terry and I always liked being with you and the family. Peace, comfort and prayers!
