    We will truly miss Jane. She was an asset to our department at FOHI. Our condolences to her family. What a GREAT LADY. We knew both her and Ralph.

  2. Greg and Joetta Gardner , Lincoln Arkansas says

    I loved Aunt Jane from the very first time we met. She was so full of laughter. I wish we could have lived closer so we could know each other better. Be thankful for all the years you had her. My heart goes out to all your family. Take care and we love you all.
