    Memere Jane will be surely missed by her adoptive family. She always had a story that would make you laugh. We are glad that we had the time that we did with her to celebrate holidays, cookouts and graduations. She was my mother’s best friend and always had an eye out to help her. May she rest in peace.
    Love Rita Clermont and all the kids.
