It was such a pleasure to know Jane, be it ever so briefly, and to play golf with her with the Kenton County Fox League. She was a warm, welcoming lady, fun and funny to be with. Loved that smile! My sympathy and prayers are with her family and her many, many close friends. She will be missed.

Dave, Breanne, Mary Ann, Sandy and Mickie -- Just wanted to let you know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember all the fun times that Janie and I had after our initial meeting at Western & Southern after we both graduated from high school. She was my maid-of-honor in my wedding and I was honored to be there for her and Dave's as well. We shared many laughs and many tears. We were long-time friends. She will be missed. Rest in Peace, Janie! I love you!!
