    I just learned of Jane’s passing and I am so sad. I only got to know Jane during the pandemic on Zoom. She was so kind and friendly. We had many conversations which were such a welcome departure from the loneliness and monotony of teaching from home. Jane and I finally met in person and I had such a feeling of comfort upon seeing her. I am heartbroken to know I will not see her again. In the short time that I had the privilege of knowing her, she left an impact. Thank you for sharing your beloved family member and friend with the world. Prayer, peace, and strength be with everyone who is missing her today.
