    I am adding this to each condolence:

    On Sunday, July 6, 2014, I, my sister, Lynne, my wife, Jacki, my daughter, Sarah, my son, Evan, and my niece, Audrey, along with her cherished dog, Pan, drove from Fayetteville to Ponca, Arkansas and released my Mom’s and Dad’s ashes into the Buffalo River.

    We found what we thought was a beautiful area. I recited the poem Mother sent to me when she made her will that begins, “Do not stand at my grave and weep.” Then Sarah held her ashes, and I Dad’s, and simultaneously we released their ashes into the river. And after Sarah and I hugged each other and had good cry and that was it.

    Jane has been in my life ever since I can remember: we were cousins, born only 3 weeks apart. In kindergarten it became clear that Jane was very bright. She quickly became a great speller and in second grade I remember how even her handwriting was incredible. When Aunt Linnie (Jane’s mother) remarked to her teacher something like, “I can’t write as well as she does”, the teacher replied, “I can’t either — it’s embarrassing!”
    By the time we were 9 or 10, when I slept over at her house, she would often make breakfast for us. She could make french toast, hot cereal, or eggs fixed any way I could name. She was a great experimenter in the kitchen!
    On several occasions over the years Jane gave me very good advice. We weren’t able to visit each other in person very often, but we did keep up with random, marathon phone calls, usually Late at night when everyone else was asleep, but one could count on Jane to still be awake and receiving phone calls. She had an astonishing supply of family stories to share (both humorous and scandalous). We always laughed a lot together! I am missing her already!
    I send my love and condolences to her children, grandkids, Marilyn, her cousins and others close to her. May we all live in the Light!

    I am so thankful Joan Marie for the stories you provided of my Mother. I know the two of you had a special relationship. She often told me of the time the two of you spent talking on the phone the past few years, and how she cherished that time. And I also know she felt same as you did about the time you spent together as children. You enriched her life.
