Jane was a very special lady! I am so glad she found Spike after she had lost her first husband. Not many are lucky enough to find 2 great loves, let alone one. She always had such a great attitude and was a kind and generous spirit. She will be well remembered! You all have our condolences. May she rest in peace.
