Maggie- May the Lord comfort you at this time, losing a parent is like losing half of you in its own way, it hurts but may her memory be in your heart and mind. I’ll be praying for your family through this difficult time.

So kind of you to remember her from those days working at the bank. I remember her being on a softball team one summer. Was that when she worked there? I would love to find a picture from her time on the team to share with her daughter.

I’m Jane’s sister.
