RIP Ms. Mary Jane. I met her when I worked at Lou's in Forest Park and from day 1 she was such a pleasant/fun lady to be around. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face and kind words for everyone. Gonna miss you Mrs. Mary Jane but your home now in the loving arms of our Father. Prayers & thoughts to her family & friends. Love Jennifer
