Sending our love to your family. What a blessing Grandma Jane was in our life. We loved our visits with her. We loved her stories. We loved that she let us call her Grandma. We loved her sweet care and concern for us. We loved that she loved chocolate. We loved her sense of humor. What a wonderful lady! We will miss her. Love, The Hinton Family

Dear Cliff, Bonnie and family members: Please accept my deepest condolences to you and your family. With Jane's passing, we now have an angel in heaven watching over us. She was so willing, happy and attentive to learn new things, even while in her 90's. I have fond memories of Jane when she was a "student" in my class. The truth is, she taught me more than could ever be written on paper or a blackboard. The spoken and unspoken treasures she gave me will forever remain in my heart. Salwa Bernier
