” I wonder,” he said, “whether the stars are set alight in heaven so that one day each of us may find his own again…”
-Antoine de Sainte-Exupery, The Little Prince.
Jane left this Earth to live for Eternity in her Heavenly Home. She fought long and hard against her nemesis, cancer. Throughout it all, she leaned on her faith in Christ as her savior and redeemer and her light only grew brighter and more magnificent. She loved life and her family deeply and abundantly. She was simply too good for this earth. On September 19, after one last kiss from her prince, she breathed her last human breath and went to her heavenly home. Cancer has died, but she lives forever.
