Please accept my condolences on the passing of your beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I got to know Jane just briefly but always enjoyed our conversations. She is now at peace, free from her pain and suffering. I know you will miss her immensely because she was a kind, loving and generous soul. Be at peace with yourselves because she is at peace having transitioned to her Heavenly Father's Home high in the heavens.
