Jane, my late husband Ed and I met years ago, as she was guided to her All Saints' Episcopal Church pew, in recent years by her beloved care givers Sharon and Andrew. She always acknowledged Anita, in next pew, others seated nearby and made certain her "fanny pack" was opened to easily retrieve her offering envelope for the usher.
Many years she sang with the choir and, more recently, played
a piano solo. Jane stood tall as the Church service continued while waited patiently, for Phyllis or I to escort to the Communion rail.
GOD granted her "angel wings" this week. Thank you to HIM for
our years of friendship. May she rest in peace.
