My deepest sympathies to all, especially to Jane’s two best friends, her mother and her husband. I'm with you in spirit as you are having Jane’s funeral service right now. Jane was a beautiful soul. We met in March 1974 on my high school’s trip to France & shared the same passion for the French language & Quebec culture. Jane came to visit me in QCity in summer '79 & was so enamored with the Quebec culture that a week later, she moved here!

RIP my friend, your spirit will live on in our hearts!
