    Dear Jim, I worked with Jane at Feast DownEast & had the pleasure of meeting you at a few functions. I am shocked & saddened to hear of Jane's passing. What a life force! Jane truly was an inspiration - so high energy & always positive. I never heard Jane say an unkind word & always saw the good in people & situations. And she was fun! Our children are close in ages so of course we talked about family. Her love for & enjoyment of her family was tremendous & delightful. I feel fortunate to have known Jane & I am so very sorry for you immense loss. Please give my love & condolences to your family. Susan Holman
