  1. Good bye my dear friend. I will miss your candor. You told me of your final wishes the last time we talked. I will keep my promise to visit you at your final resting place.

  2. I remember my folks were friends with Butch & Colonel & would visit each others homes often. I liked to go to the Linderholms because there were always cats & sometimes kittens & dogs & something good to eat. One time Butch had baked a cake & the frosting wasn’t hard or gooey & Jane, Mary & I went in the kitchen & there were 1 or 2 kittens walking on the cake in the pan! We went into hysterics but never told the adults until after the cake was served! Such good memories at the Linderholms. Go softly Jane; I’m sure there are many 4-legged friends waiting for you along with your folks!

  3. Was so sad to read about Jane’s passing. Enjoyed seeing her when she would be with your Mom.
    She was a great gal. Always so friendly and talkative. Thoughts and prayers go out to your entire family. She will certainly be missed by many.

  4. I am so glad my folks reached out to you as a senior in high school to babysit me! That created a lifetime of friendship, guidance, and fun. I grew up with the Linderholms Butch & Colonel became my adopted grandparents, always so much fun at the Linderholms. Jane and I had a lifetime of memories that I’ll cherish and keep close. I will miss our phone chats and miss her deeply. She truly was one of kind. I’m sure she and Butch & Colonel are dancing a jig and lots of 4 leggers too! So for now Aloha – “A hui hou” Until we meet again.
