It is with great sorrow that I have to tell everyone that Jane’s mother passed away a few minutes ago.  We just got off the phone, and she is understandably devastated.  I told her that you all have been wonderful and supportive, and that everyone sends their love.  She said to tell everyone how much she appreciates it.

Please take some time to love your family and friends today in honor of Jane and her family in their time of sorrow.  A little extra light would go a long way today.
