    Ms. Jane was a very special lady! Always dressed to the nines and looking her best every time you saw her! We met in Cardiac Rehab and also attended a support group for heart patients. We hit it off right away as we discovered we shared the same political leanings. I always looked forward to talking with Jane no matter the subject. It was my privilege to take Ms. Jane to several doctors appointments and also give her a ride to our support group meetings. I'll never forget taking her to Harris Teeter once to grocery shop for a few items and upon me helping her from the vehicle she grabbed a cart and away she went! When I finally caught up to her several aisles in she was motoring up and down grabbing what she could and directing me to grab items she couldn't reach! Her determination to get it done was a marvel! Her grace and care for others was extended to a group of her fellow rehab and support group members as she insisted to take us out to lunch at one of her favorite spots,Shun Lee Palace near her apartment, and she just sat back and enjoyed everyone having a great time! It was truly an honor to have known her for the short time that it was and I'll miss her very much! I know she's at peace now.

    Jane was such a gift to our family. Every Sunday, we looked for her sweet face and enjoyed sharing the "Peace of Christ" with her. Through our conversations with her, we felt we were in the presence of a true "Southern Lady." Her grace and kindness were evident in her words and actions. Many Sundays, she arrived with a present to the whole family. She eagerly waited on Max to come and offer her a hug and her hugs were the best because they were warm and heartfelt. Then, she would give him a sweet gift and say "Tell your sister I said Hi!" Sundays were special because of Jane. Jane we miss you and we are sad. Yet, we know in heaven you are sharing stories, charm and grace. You will be missed and please know Max will look for another special lady to hug but none will equal our love for you.

    I was only blessed to know Ms. Jane for a short time. But in that time she made the biggest impact on me.
    She always encouraged me to keep going with my rehab. Her example showed me that it was worth all of the time, pain and money.
    Ms. Jane may you rest in eternal peace.
    Condolences to all family members and friends. God bless
