Jane is dying.

To see Jane's name in the same sentence with the word "dying" is almost more than any of us can stand. The very definition of Jane, the very essence of who she is screams "LIFE". She is beautiful. She is funny. She is spunky beyond most. She is the wife we all want to be. An amazing mother. A loving daughter. A natural hostess. A friend to everyone. An example of Jesus to her world. In nearly eight years of battling cancer we have seen her tired, we have seen her without hair, we have seen her not look like herself . . . but we have never seen her without a smile. We have never heard her complain. We have never witnessed her be anything but radiant, inside and out.

Jane, you are a blessing and an inspiration to all of us who have the honor of knowing you. You are loved.
