    Barb, Bev, Susan and Jane…. I was so sorry to read about the passing of your sweet Mother. I have sincerely, thought of your Mom often over the years. One of my fondest memories was “Share the Fun” in 4-H and we were in card board boxes fixed up like TV sets. One person would pretend to change the channel and do a commercial and the timing of the commercials brought great laughs. It was a fun time in your parents garage with your Mom spear heading the whole skit. This was back when Barb, Bev and I were back at Jackson grade school. I had the pleasure of sitting with your Mom during a Lenten breakfast at the Manor before covid in 2020 and we visited and chatted about fond memories. Your Mom was our realtor when we bought our present home…she was so helpful and kind….however….that was the norm for your precious Mom. I am thankful my path crossed with your Mom….she always made my heart smile….your Mom, Jane Rodgers blessed me. I know you will miss her terribly, but oh the memories you girl will always be able to share. Your Mom is home now and safe…she has heard the sweet words of her Savior, Well done good and faithful servant. Sincerely. Jenny
