Jane lived across the street from me in Waters Edge. I loved visiting with her and petting the daschunds. She was a fun person to be around.
My sincere sympathies to her family.

May it comfort you to know so many share in your loss. We have many memories of times with Tom and Jane. I was postmaster and in Gilbert and met the family when they first moved to Gilbert. Tom was an excellent carpenter and did work for us on a remodeling project. Jane was never without her trademark welcoming smile. May all of your memories sustain you and give you comfort.

What a shock to read that my very vital, happy go lucky, always fun friend has passed away. I loved my conversations with Jane when ever I would be lucky enough to run into her at Mos. Dear Erica, I know you have lost your very best friend. I always admired how the two of you enjoyed each other so much. She was always there when you needed her. You and the rest of her family were so very special to her. She will be greatly missed by so many.
Erica, will you please contact me so we can discuss what happened and if there is anything I could do to help ease your pain. I so enjoyed you here at PPM and missed your presence for a long time. Call me at PPM if you would please. So very sorry for your loss.
