    So sorry John to hear of Jane’s passing. I have many fond memories of her in school. I always said that she was responsible for me getting into the apprenticeship at Crane.

    Jane was the very brave person who taught me how to drive. It is a "life-long" skill that everyone needs to know. We went out many times and, she was so helpful to me. Thanks, dear Jane.

    John, I am so sorry about the passing of Jane. I just talked to her at the JC store last weekend. She was a very sweet woman. Please accept my condolences. Know you will be in my thoughts and prayers as you lay her to rest. I can't come to her service as I have other obligations. We all love you.

    Jane was so kind and caring. Before we moved to Lawrence County, she let us stay in the extra bedroom she had and fixed us a wonderful breakfast and lunch on Sunday. She will be missed.
