    Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayers. I didn’t know Jane but from all I hear of her from her alum friends at Lumen, she was a wonderful woman. May your memories of her bring you comfort and peace.
    I was principal at Lumen from 80-87.

  3. Jane was/is a wonderful person, she passed way to young. My prayers are with her, Bob and Kristin. She was a great employee for Cuyahoga County, to bad we didn’t have more employees like her. She will be truly missed, peace to her family.

  4. Jane was a wonderful neighbor, and I’m sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet up for balinca this year! Bob and Kristen, you’re in our prayers,

    The Mersek Family,

    Lee J., Anikó, and Zsófia

    What a beautiful video remembrance of Jane! I cannot begin to imagine the heartache you must feel, and I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I was, and still am, stunned by the news of her passing… Janie was my sweet high school friend, and one of my best memories of her was sitting in her family’s back yard, playing “Sunshine on My Shoulders” on my guitar, and then singing the song to her. I had never sung a song out loud to anyone, and I never did again. Jane was someone you could trust to do something like that. I will miss her precious presence on this Earth. Please know that I am surrounding you all with the brightest light and love possible, and am praying for your strength.
