I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Jane's passing. She was a woman full of compassion and patience. I remember her being so patient with all of us kids when we were young, even when we tested that patience to the limit. She is and will be remembered fondly always. My love to Uncle Ben, Randy, Candy and families. May God bring you peace. Love always, Vickie Mediate
