I send Jane's family my condolences. I worked with Jane for several years while I was in high school and college. Jane was a wonderful woman and role model. She worked very hard and taught me much about working with the public. She also set a great example of how to enjoy life with her love of music, family, Durland Place neighborhood, and travel. I will always remember her smile, laughter, compassion, and fortitude. Thank you Jane for being a part of my life.
