    To Paul, Phil, Joel, and Greg...I was so sorry to hear of Mary Jane's passing. I send my love and prayers at this time. I will always remember the good times with your family on Newtown Street. As a teenager, I used to do your Mom's hair on Saturday mornings. She would sit in the driveway (never in the house) and I would pin-curl her hair. Then I would come back after it dried and comb it out. I am confident you are with Junie, Chris and maybe even my Mom and Dad now. Rest in peace, Mary Jane.
