    Sorry to hear about the passing of Auntie Jane. She was a wonderful woman and a great aunt. I always enjoyed stopping at the farm at chatting with her and Duke. She had a great laugh and would make me laugh. She was very much loved and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Duane and all of you guys. I hope your sadness is comforted with the many happy memories.
