  • I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jane but only knew her through stories shared by Debbie and Jody, all reflecting that she was a refined, elegant woman who loved travel and the joy of living. Debbie is the finest example of a major life achievement Jane had. You could not have done better, Jane and I know you loved your family. Rest In Peace.

  • My sympathies to Uncle Ray, my cousin Marianne and Jane's family
