I don't know if I ever saw your mom without a smile on her face. That says so much about someone. May you all find comfort in each other, knowing how fondly she will be remembered by all the people she may have touched with that beautiful smile and voice.

Dearest Jane,
Your smile, friendship, kindness, generosity, beauty, and love live on in our hearts. Rest in peace and may you always have an angel at your side.

My memories of this lady go back to when I first met her as a future mother in law for my son. She was very open to him and his father and I. She made us feel like he was appreciated and very welcome to their family. She always made us feel welcome in their home when we came to visit. My grandsons who we share, loved her dearly. May she rest in peace with God. Fly with the eagles Janie!!!!!!!!! Best of wishes. Barb Rozeboom
