I just wanted to say that I think about my cousin Jane often. I still am in shock from her passing, it just doesn't seem real. Mostly I feel for her daughters Tracy and Kim because I can only imagine how hard it is to lose their mother at this stage in life. Karen, I hope you are doing ok also...you were very close with your sister. Al,you were a great companion to Jane and I bet you could tell alot of wonderful stories of your lives together. My heart aches for all of you, she was an absolutely amazing person in my eyes.

I am so sad to hear of Jane's passing. I just found out yesterday, I still can't believe it. I worked with Jane @ Gordon Food Service for several years, and we shared many laughs together. And confided in one another from time to time.She will be missed, and I will never forget the time we shared. We'll meet again some day...

To Al, Jane's daughters, and families, Karen, I want to express my sincere sympathy. I had a lot of fun with Jane at Immanuel Lutheran school - Korf School especially!
It is so very hard for me to imagine that she is gone. We last spoke at our 50th Confirmation reunion. Thank God for that opportunity.

I'll always remember. The cruise (laugh from departure to return) - the trip to the YO in TX - the strength you gave me when Phil died. I don't think I thanked you enough for your support. I'm sure you know how I feel. Thank you for being my friend. I'll always remember.

We are so sorry to hear about Jane's passing and our hearts are so heavy. Jane was such a loving, happy and spirited cousin, who always had a smile for everyone. We haven't made it back to Michigan very often lately, but we're so thankful we were able to visit with her at Uncle Elmer's 95th birthday.

God bless all of you as you mourn your mother, sister, Grandma and fiancé. Our deepest condolences.

Love, Cheryl (Daenzer) and Dan Houck

So sorry to hear of Jane's passing. We always had great fun on the holidays & birthdays at our Uncle Clarence's as we celebrated with the Heinlein clan. I always thought sharing an Uncle was kind of a neat thing.
It was good to see Jane last year at our confirmation reunion. I look forward to seeing her again in the presence of our Savior.

Words cannot express my thoughts of deep sadness in the loss of Jane.

She was the spark plug of us "Heinlein girls" and always a friend when anyone was in need. My most cherished early memory of Jane was when we were little kids and she let me hang with her--even though there was a 5 year age difference. Monumental when so young. We would meet up at Grandma Heinlein's house and run out to the barn out back, crawl underneath on our hands and knees to bury what was perceived to be valuable treasures in our special hiding place, and then laugh and jabber incessantly without a care in the world. I hold this dear memory close in my heart.
Always a smile for me--always an acute understanding we had for each other. A life so cherished -- a lost so sudden -- my heart and those of her special family and friends so broken. I will remember her always as my baking and gardening guru, my cousin and my friend.

I was saddened to hear of Jane's passing but rejoice at her soul's presence in heaven. Now I am even more grateful than ever that she was able to join the rest of us at our 50th Confirmation Class reunion last year and look forward to the day when all of us can celebrate together again heaven.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by God, also by the words in the Bible at Philemon 4-7 along with the support and love of your family and friends.

My heart is filled with sorrow over the loss of Jane. She was a great addition to our family. We loved her and are blessed to have had her in our lives. I am thankful she loved my dad and he, her. I will hold many dear memories of our time with her in my heart. Hugs and Prayers to you all.

We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. Our Grand Creator never intended for us to experience such heartache and sorry, nor does he desire anyone to be lost to death. (2 Perer 3:9) He will soon PERMANENTLY undo the effects of death forever. (1 Corinthians 15:26) What a wonderful day it will be.
