I will never forget her gracious and generous spirit. I was blessed to work with her, to learn from her, and to laugh with her. One of my favorite "Jane stories" was at her retirement. our principal applauded her timely writing of thank you notes. She stepped from the room only to return within seconds waving Jane's thank you for the remembrance she had been given. "See what did I tell you? You can never get ahead of Jane!" Now it is time for me to say thank you for sharing her with us.
Honoring a life well lived with dignity, strength, intelligence, and caring.
