John, Please accept our deepest condolences in the loss of Jane. She was such a lovely, kind Christian woman. May God's love and peace be a comfort to you in the days ahead without your precious bride. Praying all the wonderful memories you two shared these many years will bring you comfort as you grieve. God bless you and may He keep you close in His care. In Christ, Patti and Donald Stone
