    I will remember Jane always as whitty, smart , and interesting. We were close the first couple of years of our lives. She was a month older and our mothers were sisters. Our family moved away from Nashville and Jane and I were never again as close as we were then.
    My condolences to her daughters and sisters.
    We will remember her.

    I remember Jane in the neighborhood growing up. Julia Green and Hillsboro. Her family’s home was always a fun place to be. Praying for peace in the sad time.

    Linda, I’m so sorry for your loss! I live and work very near the funeral home and noticed the crowds this afternoon but just now discovered it was your sister. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see you today and if you’re going to be in town for a few days and have time please get in touch with me.
