  24. Oh sweet Mary Jane, I just found out and am heartbroken. I was just thinking about you this last weekend so fondly. I was spending time with my grandchildren and feeling so grateful for my husband of 20 years and remembering you were there when we met and how lovely you played at our wedding as I walked down the aisle…. your sister and you are better than any fancy orchestra. I love you and all the Sedalia Ward family for so many memories and how you supported us when we lost Mary. You will be missed but the thought of your sweet reunion with your mother makes my heart full.

  25. So sorry to read of this. Mary Jane was always such a sweetie going to school with her.
