  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I know from the conversations with my dear cousins Dom and Mary Pane that Mary Jane was an exceptional wife mother grandmother and loved by all who knew her. Her Children are amazing and loved her so dearly they never left her side while she was so ill.
    It has to be some relief to know that Mary Jane although missed by her loved ones is now without pain and in the loving arms of Jesus and Dom.
    God bless your devoted family

  2. I’ll miss my dear friend Mary Jane. She was more than a friend to me…she was a sister at heart. We spent wonderful years together at Letchworth, sharing our thoughts, worries and our hopes.

    Mary Jane was an inspiration and model to me. Her compassion, generosity, humor, and humility were traits I wanted to emulate. She was one of a kind. When God created her He must have patted Himself on the back!

    Her family was the most important thing in her life. My prayers are with you all. You can take comfort in knowing that she was loved by everyone and she surely had an express trip to Heaven to be with Dominic.

    Carl and I are very deeply saddened. Our love and prayers to all of you.

  3. My condolences to all the family, Mary Jane was wonderful person. I pray that you may find strength and comfort in your loss.

  10. I’d like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. I hope and pray this message brings comfort and sooths the pain that you are experiencing at this time. What has helped me to cope and deal with the loss of a loved one is found in God’s word the Bible. John 5:28,29 says “The hour is coming in which all those in memorial tombs will here his [ Jesus ] voice and come out.” And at Revelation 21:3,4 it states that “death will be no more.” You can find similar comforting verses at

  11. So sorry to hear of your of your loss. May God give you strength in the days ahead. May you cherish the memories of her and hold them forever in your heart.

  12. Usually, I know what to write when these things happen.
    There’s nothing I can write or say to explain my thoughts today.
    I saw you guys—I mean girls and jimmy — 2 years ago (big D left on my birthday march 1st!) . I know there’s some good Sicilian luck in that. Your mom was so nice to me. ( ps: her children got the DNA height gene from her) . I am so sorry I did not make the wake or funeral. Jimmy, i and my family ( Lynd’s) send condolences.
    Ps: I hope you and your sisters realize how great your parents are. And, Pss: your dad worked as probation officer? Oh I know you miss them more than anyone of us, just know they are family again.
    I hope to see you Jim sooner than later to remember the best times with your mom and dad. And Dina, i hope you’ll recognize me down at the lake so I can get a table.( I am so sorry you lost your parents). But, I do know my family respects yours. The Lynd’s memories and stories about Big D and mj are still great and available for you to hear if you ever need to be happier, need a laugh, etc…
    Again. I’ can’t write exactly what I wanted to. Just know , when I get there – there’s gonna be good food. Love you all. Talk to you soon Jimmy.
