Sorry for your loss. I will remember Aunt Jene for being very creative and doing many types of crafts. She taught me to crochet when I was very young and gave me some doilies to encourage me. I got my hair styled by her for many years. Aunt Jene will be missed but she’s in a better place now with our Lord.
