The family wishes to thank the two Mother Hens, Judy Boleman and Virginia Spigener and the Rooster, Starr Teel for watching over and taking care of Jane when the family was away. They are considered to be our extended family. We are thankful and grateful to the caregivers at The Laurels of Hendersonville. Many became personal friends to Jane while living at The Laurels. Your service, friendship, and smiles made each day a Happy Day for Jane. To our many friends and family who have been so supportive to us over the past 14 months, we wish to thank you for your love, support and nurturing of Jane and our family. Also a special thanks to family and friends who visited Jane on her front porch at Avon Street.
