I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is too much for us to handle alone. Our loving Heavenly Father promises to help you through this difficult time. “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit”. —Psalms 34:18, 19.

We are blessed to have many people in our lives and Jane and family are certainly some of them. It has been an honor and privilege to have know her and have her in my life. To the family, I was once told that there is no pain in death except for those who are left behind. Jane fought a valiant batter; but, she is home and in the arms of our Lord. Praise God!! I love you all and keep you in my prayers always. Blessings and Peace, Jacki

My heart is heavy learning of Jane's passing, I cannot imagine how her beloved family feels. I will miss seeing her joy when she sang in the choir, as her love for Christ and the belief of what she was singing glowed from her. Her illness and passing happened so quickly it is hard to mentally process. I do know that she has been welcomed into Heaven and is whole and happy, as she knew she would be, and believed it with her heart and soul. May God's grace and Jane's love embrace you and carry you through the coming days.

Our deepest sympathy to the entire Holsinger family. Jane and I first met when we taught nursing students in the Practical Nursing program. We formed a precious bond of love and respect that has endured for 47 years . Jane was a wonderful witness for Christ in all she did and my life is richer for having know her. I am going to miss her terribly. May she Rest In Peace and her memory be eternal. Love Karen and Tedd
