  • Jane Hardin Andrea, I am so sorry you have to go through this inescapable grieving processing. I know Mary wouldn't that either. I didn't know Mary as well as I know you, but I know she had to be pretty special to travel the land with you for 48 yrs. Being with only 1 person is a strong task. You were both special enough to stay together. Call if you need to. Much love, Jane
