I was so sorry I lost connections with Jane. Saw her last right after Dicks funeral. I moved to Parks Senior Living and have lost contact with Fairlane neighbors so sorry I did not get to service. Jay and Jane were so loved by us. They were such wonderful people and great neighbors. Won't be too awful long before I get to see them again. So sure they are having wonderful reunion with Family and friends. Love and blessings to all. Jo Stearns

Dear Family,
Your mother was a dear and treasured friend of mine. I will greatly miss her. I have fond memories being neighbors. May the Lord of peace and comfort be with you.
