To my wonderful beautiful Aunt Mary Jane. I will always remember your smile always being on your face. I will always remember your laugh when we would share stories. And I will always remember the beautiful person you are inside and out. Our mother loved you from her heart, she told you this before she died and so do I and my sisters. Our visits with you throughout the years will be cherished. You will be missed so very much Aunt Mary Jane. Your memories and love will last forever. Rest in peace dear Aunt.
