    Pam & Daniel: Please accept my most heart-felt condolences. Your mother was, without a doubt, the nicest, most pleasant, loving, and fun person that I have had the pleasure of knowing on this “journey”. You can be proud of how she surely touched the lives of all those who were privileged to have known her. I will miss her, and your dad, immensely. Take care., Cousin Alan

    Pam and Daniel, I was saddened by the news of your mother’s passing. I haven’t spent much time with your mother, relatively speaking, but I feel that I knew her really well and that she left a lasting impression on me. I have met very few people who where as full of life as aunt Jane or as welcoming to anyone who would visit her. I had the pleasure of playing cards with her and her sister and have seldom laughed so hard and enjoyed myself so much. I left exhausted, wanting more, and a few dollars poorer. Jane embodied what it meant to be “salt of earth” in all the ways that count, as a mother, a wife, an aunt, a sister, a host, and member of the community. In these crazy times that we are living in, we would certainly be better off if there were more people like her around to put life into perspective. Your immediate and extended family have suffered greatly over the past year and I hope you may find some peace and better fortune going forward, and I’m sure some angel is down a quarter from aunt Jane shooting the moon.
