Aunt Mary Jane is an exuberant, full-of-life individual. I say "is" because life continues on after this. She loves her husband and her family and life itself. When I think of Aunt Mary Jane, I think of her laugh and her smile. I am sorry that I was not able to be there for her "celebration"; but I have many wondeful memories of her. I pray for peace and comfort to be with her family members who are now missing her daily presence here on earth.
