Very sad to hear of Jane's passing. She was one of the most creative, loving, and fun friends in my life. Her love of music, quilting, dogs, hiking, attending church and laughter. She had a bright spirit and loved the Lord and her family. She always had a smile. Jane is reunited with her beloved husband Bob now. So sorry for your loss of your mom Kim & Paul. The Lord knew it was time to take her. Praying for your sorrow and grief. He is Faithful. Grateful she was in my life.
