Celebrating the life of Jane Buckner Ponder
Thank you for signing Jane Buckner Ponder's Guestbook
Dennis and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Jane was so sweet each time I would see her, usually at the grocery store. The home will never be the same again but remember the good times and know there is a great home coming some day! I love you all and didn't know about this in time to come from Tennessee. Trust in God, Dennis and He will see you through the bad days. I truly sympathize with you.

Dear Dennis, Gerald, Beverly and Cathy.
We have been honored to be your next door neighbors for over 40 years, and have shared in your lives while your children, along with ours, were becoming adults. Jane has been one of the bravest of God's children. She fought a good fight, and Dennis, you were a devoted and loving husband who only left her side when you had to. We know that the days ahead will be difficult and please call on us for whatever we can do.
We love you all, Jane and Benny Roberts
