Steve and I are so sorry that Jane and Terry spent their final days together with her suffering from this horrible disease. Yet, true to the conscience of Christianity that led their lives, love followed Jane's trip to her Heavenly Father. Steve worked for Terry for many years and enjoyed all of them. Terry treated his fellow workers with dignity and compassion. Jane's teaching life fulfilled her and brought kindness, humor, and intelligence to all her lucky students. We pray that her family recognizes the richness that she brought to their lives, and we pray that their sorrow eases with time as they feel her presence and her grace infusing their lives.
Much love and many prayers~
