My deepest sympathies to the family.

I knew and worked with Jane many years ago. She was instrumental in introducing me to the field of contract services. She helped me personally and professionally for many years. We spent many hours together laughing, recalling work related tales, often during long commutes and hard work site locations. We plotted and schemed together to make good things happen for the companies we represented, the people we worked with and the people we supervised. She truly loved people wanting the best for them.

I will be ever grateful for her friendship and guidance. She was my mentor.

I recall sending Jane an expression of sympathy when her beloved father died. I stated that she was then handed the gauntlet, to assume the position of head of family.
The passing of the gauntlet is again at hand.

Sincere thoughts.

I am so sorry to hear of Janes passing. I had the pleasure of doing Janes hair for 20 plus years until she wasn’t able to come in anymore. I adored her. She was so fun to talk to. She always had such wonderful things to say about her family. She was so proud of all of you. Prayers for the family for comfort and peace.

I was very sorry to hear of Jane's passing. I visited her on numerous occasions while going to Baltimore and thoroughly enjoyed her company and hospitality. She was truly a wonderful person to have known.
