Bud,
The exquisite and beautiful picture of Jane in this morning’s Times-Tribune is just like I have always remembered her. And then there was her wonderful sense of humor I could never forget either.
How hard it must have been for both of you since you told me all those years ago about Jane’s condition. I often wondered how it was going but never saw you to ask. I thought you moved to Florida for some reason.
Please accept my sympathy for your great loss. Let the fact that Jane is at peace be of some comfort to you now.
Keeping you and Jane in my prayers.

Dear Jane and Family,
Oh, the memories you’ve given me today!! I think we were together our entire K-12 school career- what a GOOD, long, FUN time that was! And then I had the good fortune of teaching Christian at our alma mater – Whittier School! Bill and I were reminiscing today and had a laugh remembering chatting with you when you worked at Boscov’s, which you told us to do ‘on the sly’ and quickly ‘cuz you were called on the carpet for being too friendly to store customers – go figure!! Thanks for the memories – always loved ya’ and always will!!
And, very sincere condolences. God Bless.
