I was so sorry to hear of Jane's passing. I have many fond memories from my childhood of going to Ferguson's store on Main Street in Bliss. I always thought the world of Neil and Jane and your family. I'm thinking of all of you. Especially you Nana. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,
Janet
