My    sincere and heartfelt sympathy to Jane’s family.  I met her along with her sister Margaret when my brother Donald married Margaret.  Although our paths were not frequently passed we shared our familoy relationships.  She was a dedicated mother and grandmother and loved her family dearly.  Sympathy from the Kissinger family  in Milwaukee, Wis.

Our sympathies on the passing of your Mother/Grandmother/Great-Grandmother.  Jane was a gentle soul who cherished her family. How very lucky you all were to have her in your life. She was always so sweet and happy to stop and chat when we saw her.  Lititz lost another good one. I will remember her with a smile.
