    To John, Joyce and Jim, my deepest sympathy for your loss. I was out of town during the funeral and was sad to hear the news. I have a lot of fond memories of Jayne during my younger years when John and I hung out a lot together, and I remember her always being kind and thoughtful. You will be missed Jayne, RIP.

    Jayne was my Ist cousin and more important my closest friend for my preteen & early teen years. I was her Maid of Honor and have so many memories and stories. I’m really sad tonight. Love you Jayne.
