Grandma Jane will forever be in my heart... I don’t remember a church memory without her in it. Her and grandma dot were my great grandmothers best friends that I knew of so if my great grandmother were around at the church so was grandma dot and grandma Jane.

Miss Jane was such a sweet lady and such a faithful servant to the Lord. She always had a smile and a kind word to say.The smile I remember the most was the last time she was at church and Terri was pushing her down the hall and Miss Jane was just smiling and waving and my heart was in my throat.
