    My condolences to Jane’s family. I immediately recognized her. It’s been years since high school; I remember she had a lot of energy and was happy. May she rest in peace.

    Sad to see that Jane passed away, and so young. I have fond memories of Jane years ago in Utica hanging around her grandpa Harry’s Lumbago Inn. She always seemed to be such a happy and upbeat girl. May she rest in peace.
