To all of my family my prayer is that the peace of God will be felt on those days when you can’t believe she’s gone and that we allow ourselves to be held in the loving arms of Jesus. Mama set a beautiful example of how a woman who fears the lord should live their life while on earth… she had many fruits of the spirit but I will just list some she was kind, she didn’t hold grudges, she gave to the poor and needy, she loved us all without partiality, she trusted in the Lord, she had joy, she had faith in the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and she was humble. I loved Mama and she knew it and I knew she loved me and I am so, so thankful that God placed such a woman in my life and I am thankful for all the time I got to spend with her she has forever touched my life.

Mary Jane was a very hardworking and wonderful person. She was always one of the first people to show up to help when there was work to be done. Her kindness went above and beyond just words. She was a doer. Our prayers are that the precious Comforting Spirit will overshadow Uncle Kizer and the entire family with love, comfort and grace. May the beautiful flower that we have lost grow gracefully in the wonderful Garden of Heaven.
Love and Prayers,
