While I didn’t know Jane very well, she was always friendly with a smile and a wave when she saw you.

I was impressed when she worked at Winners, she was one worker that got things done !

Dear Ed. We are thinking of you during this most difficult time. Although we didn’t get to know Jane very well as your family moved west, I did get to see her last year when she and Helen stopped in at my work to visit for a short while. Love and prayers Terry and Rosalind

Jane I didn’t know you really well in your adult life but did know you when you were a young girl. You would come by and take my boys to the park and give me a much needed brake when I was a single Mom.
The boys always looked forward to spending time with you Thank you for sharing your time so willingly.
Ed sorry for your loss of such a young vibrant lady.

My sister Heather was school friends with Jane growing up, that was how I got to know Jane.
