We were so sorry to hear of Mary Jane's passing. We share such sweet memories of her and Freddy at H&H Shoppette. We were always greeted with her bright smile and happy eyes. It was always a joy to be in her presence for she had pleasant things to say that brought much joy to our hearts. We shared many laughs together and of course serious moments as well. We missed her when she sold the shoppette but thought of her often and wondered where she was. She will be greatly missed many. Praying for comfort for her precious family as you face the days ahead without her. May God bless.
