Amy, we have just read Jane's obituary on line. We remember our years in the neighborhood, and what a beautiful lady Jane was. Two years ago we re-located to a retirement facility in Virginia and are loving all the activities and being closer to Cate and grandchildren activities. We will be thinking about you during this time and remembering all the good that Your Mom was. Love, Carl and Ann Barkley

Our sincere sympathies to the family of Mrs. Mendenhall. I have fond memories of our times at Fairview when I was growing up. I don't remember if Jane loved blueberries as much as Ed, but was happy to bring them when they were in season. Our thoughts are with you all during this time. Stephanie, Brent & Darla Johnson

Kevin & Amy~ It's difficult to describe what your mom and dad meant to me for over 60 years. You've heard it said that you might forget what someone said to you or what they did but you never forget how they made you feel. A reverence for ones' space and self-esteem, respect and, of course, certainly love, is a only a start. I'll put their influence on me this way~ I'd rather own a small fraction of the Hope Diamond than a whole rhinestone. A rare couple, indeed, and they loved you both immensely. All GOOD NEWS. And, oh, yeh, love from Banjo and Samsson!
