I have many memories of Mary Jane, I will always remember her cooking Fried Chicken whenever we came to visit in Hominy. Another aspect was Mary Jane had perfect memory of people or events, she would ramble on while talking to you. Your Mom will be missed dearly but she is now at peace and reunited with Robert and Shellie.
I Love You and you can call me anytime you need to talk or vent.
Love Bryon.
