“I never met Jane in person, but we shared a love of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. Though we had never met, I could see that Jane was a kind, loving soul with a heart full of love and a zest for life. Her beautiful smile never seemed to fade even during times of her greatest fears. She will always be an inspiration to me, and I hope the light from her smile and the love in her heart will light the way for those she loved the most ... Roger and her family.
