I am so sad to learn about the passing of
Merry Jane. I’m sure she was proud to be part of that wonderful Ayers family. I remember when she worked at that little corner store on Pine Street. She always wore a dainty single pearl necklace that I loved that I thought made her pretty special. Hoping she has many pearls in heaven. With love and sympathy
