Ben and family, Just found out about Jane's passing. As cousins we spent many wonderful times together at Grandma Webb's and at her home in East Syracuse. Although as we grew older and out of touch, I will cherish those times we all had. Her sister Bunny, cousin Janet, my sister Mary, cousins Linda and Jane.
We had a wonderful childhood together that I will never forget. God Bless you all and my your memories bring you comfort.

My deepest condolences to Ben and the entire family. I first met Jane when I worked at the college where she worked. We quickly became friends, and remained friends over the years even after I moved away. I looked forward to Ben and Jane's visit when they came to Gettysburg. She was such a wonderful, giving, fun,and talented woman and I will miss her. She was a light to so many, and that light will continue to shine on. I hold the entire family in prayer during this difficult time.
