I was in Ms. Howard's kingergarten class in 1969. Such fond memories. So sorry for your loss. Kathy Roberson

Dear Jerry ad family, I remember all of you and especially you, Jerry and Jane, when you were in the choir at Raleigh Court United Methodist. I worked there from 1970-1977. I have so many fun memories of Jane in choir and in pre=school where I taught music. Jane and I had many laughs together then. She was a good person and I am glad she is not suffering. My love and prayers go out to all of you! Sincerely, Linda Mayes

Jerry, You are in my prayers. Jane was a wonderful person and I know she is now with her dear lord in a better place. Ernestine and family

She was a very special lady. I can still picture her coming down the side isle of the church, dressed up like a chicken and leading the children. She touched many lives. Both of my boys were in her Sunday School class and participated in the Bible Schools she helped organize. I had the joined the choir in time to sing with Jane and Jerry. What voices. There is one more special voice in heaven today.

Dear Kathy,
I am so sorry to hear about your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God's peace be with you.

Kathy and Mike, so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you.

Jerry, I am so so sorry to hear of Jane's passing. As someone who was so blessed by her teaching as a child and then so fortunate to have her bless and teach my children also,I was taught many good and Godly lessons by this sweet sweet lady. I was also fortunate enough to have had her mentor me when I started teaching my own Sunday School Class at Woodlawn, those lessons I have carried on to the church I am teaching at now. The world has lost a Guiding light and Heaven has gained one.
