We will miss a wonderful woman and special artist at our home in Cortes Bay! Our thoughts are with you Rankin at this time and so glad she fought the fight to the end and is now at peace.
A real beaut!

Jane will be greatly missed. She was a treasure of a human. So funny, so quick and clear and real. She and Rankin have such a special bond and my heart goes out to him in this loss. I'm so lucky to have known Jane for the time I did. Godspeed wild woman! Until we meet again!

Jane, your smile always brightened up the Cortes Bay neighbourhood and your turned wooden bowls are art pieces. My thoughts and best wishes are with you Rankin.
