I was truly blessed to know Jane; she was a special lady.

Dear Tom,

I was very sorry to hear about your mother's passing, and i have had her in my thoughts a lot over the past several years.

I am glad my mom and dad were able to attend the memorial service in Albemarle, and get to speak to you and your family.

I hope to see you again sometime soon, and again express my sorrow and prayers to you and Mack.

My mom also got to speak with Bess briefly. My thoughts are with her as well.

Bless you,
John Frederick

To Tommy and Mack I extend my deepest condolences to you on the passing of your mother. Growing up at First Baptist made us all seem like family, and I'm grateful that I got to know your mother (and father) - may wonderful memories be with you both and your families.

Mack and Tom, I was so sorry to read of your mother's death in the paper tonight and am disappointed that I was missed her service. She was such a lovely lady and I cherish the friendship that I shared with her and your dad. They had a beautiful gift of making everyone feel so special and welcome at all times. I am sad yet happy that Jane is now with Don and I know that heaven rejoiced with them

Sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I just heard about it Tuesday afternoon or I would have attended the service.She was a special lady who everytime I saw her around town always asked about my children. I remember going over to your house when we were in school and she always made me feel welcome at your house. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during these difficult times.

Dear Tommy:

My prayers are with you and your family during this time of loss and change. Just reading about your mother tells me that you were blessed with wonderful, loving, and spiritual parents. Take comfort in knowing that your mother is at home with Jesus and your father.

You will always be in my heart and prayers, Tommy.
