I met Jane at Sullivan Central High School my Senior year 79-80'. We were in band together. I just found out about her passing and I'm so very saddened, but I know she is in the presence of the Lord. We miss you Jane.
Fred and Charlene Kaufmann
We just heard and we are so sorry, Mike, for you and your family. Once heard a little 6 year old say, "when someone dies, God builds a rainbow from here to Heaven." Surely Jane has a rainbow. With our deepest sympathy.

We didn't get to spend much time with our southern cousins but I remember one particular time when the Collins and the Beals visited us in Connecticut while they were camping. Shake and Bake was running an ad campaign at that time and we were constantly asking Jane to say "It's Shake and Bake and I helped" with her southern accent. She said it with a smile although she probably thought we were crazy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
