Jane's friendship has been a blessing all of my life. I truly enjoyed visiting with her wherever we happened to meet. She dearly loved her family and was very proud of her children.
Mike, your sister adored you! She personally told me that many times!
My mother taught Jane's Sunday School class at First Baptist Church when Jane was in high school. Mother loved her and thought highly of Jane.
I thank God for my friendship with Jane. May God bless and comfort you all.

Jane, as I knew Her was a dear sweet person. I had not seen her in many yrs. now. .But she was always a lot of fun.Her laugh would lighten your life! I remember an incident once when Jane, Her sister Edith and Her Husband Ken, Her cousin Louise and I were all riding around. Ken always thought itwas funny to scare me. So we drove out around the city lake and there were some dips in the road. So Ken, wanting to scare me, sped up and when we hit the bumps, my stomach felt like it went into my shoes. Everyone got so tickled. But Jane laughed and laughed and talked about it for a long time after. And every time she told the story, she would get tickled again.. So I don't know what expression I had on my face, but she sure got a laugh out of it. To all the Family, I am so sorry for your loss of such a Dear person.Hold tight to your memories and God's blessings on all of you.My Love to All of you. Pat Boyle
