Dear Darlene,
I recognized Jane after reading in the paper. I remember when she visited your Mother & I stopped by with the girls. Jane would sit out on the stoop for a "smoke". We still refer to the house as Mrs. Tanner's. I know Jane hasn't been well & it was a good thing for her to be closer to you. I also saw she was at her 50th reunion-Jim & I were both at the Alumni dinner that night. I wish I had seen her. Please know you are in my thoughts. We are in the same place if you drive by stop & say hello. Sincerely,Gail McEntire

Dear Darlene and family-----We were sorry to read about Jane's passing--unfortunately we did not read about until this morning ( Thursday- 8/16) and were unable to attend service at church. I know it wasn't an easy path for either of you over the course of the last few years---she was fortunate to have a caring sister, other relatives and friends who cared about her. We will remember her fondly---like the obit stated---she is now free.

Dear Darlene,
May wonderful memories help you in your grieving. Jane was a special, spiritual woman. She was a delightful roommate in nursing school. I am glad I got a chance to see her in Carlsbad many years ago. I will miss her fun,upbeat Christmas letters.
