I spent some time with you at the hospital on Friday and told you how much you were loved by all.
May you be dancing with your angel friends and be pain free.

Always loved our shared stories and laughter with Janie. She always could crack me up and told things the way they were. I raise my glass to you my sweet angel!

Cindy and Phil

Janie was a special lady and friend of mine. She always had a smile on her face and a great attitude. I was shocked and saddened to hear of her passing.
My last memory with her was dancing with her at the end of her class reunion in Parsons last October. She wanted one last dance and I am glad we did. She will be missed a lot.

Jane, I always admired your ability to keep your sense of humor when working with the students at Johnson. I wasn't nearly as good at that as you were. I can visualize you in Heaven, with your whistle, coaching a game of volleyball or soccer. You're redirecting those little angels up there with the same patience I saw you display so frequently. I will miss your smile.
