    Dear Family of Mary Jane:

    I am so sorry for your loss. We were neighbors years ago when your family lived on Williams Street in Frankfort. We have fond memories of being neighbors. I became the Director of the Literacy Program at the Frankfort Library and worked with Mary Jane as a Literacy Volunteer. She had the biggest heart for everyone and was always willing to help others.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers….
    Kim Redington

    Dear Connie,

    The memories of your mom were so precious. It brought back my memories of the time I spent with her and your family. She was a great lady and so gracious. I don’t think I ever saw her get mad. She would calmly let us know if we were doing anything wrong. It was great seeing you again at the reunion.
