I was saddened to hear of Jane’s passing. We were reacquainted at a mutual friend’s birthday party in Minneapolis a few years ago. It was great seeing her and catching up from our school days at St. Joes and Grand Rapids High School. Please accept my most sincere condolences for your loss. Suzanne Berns
