I am so sorry to hear of Jane's passing.. She was a wonderful person and always a joy to see out in the community. I always enjoyed our little visits at Grady's when I would see her shopping. She leaves many great memories for her family and friends. May God Bless!

Mrs. Mickel was the best neighbor and friend a young mom could ask for. She loved my children and myself like a grandma would. I looked forward to receiving her phone calls on my birthday. She loved the Lord and is rejoicing with him now. Prayers for the family.

Jane was a wonderful woman and mother to her children. She made everyone that entered her path in life confident and taught them to love god and themselves. I was one of them. the moment she came into my life she made me feel welcomed when Larry and I moved into her neighborhood.We had a lot of laughs together and sometimes tears, but there was always love.I'm going to miss her so much.
