Dear Family, My deepest sympathies to you in your time of loss. I had the pleasure to get to know Jane through our association of the Mississippi Regulatory Compliance Group. Whenever there was a bank compliance issue Jane was always available to provide her insight to the matter. We discussed many a compliance issue over the phone and again at our quarterly complinace meetings in Jackson. Her warmth and personality will be missed by all of us.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. I met her through the bank when I refinanced my house. She was my loan officer and was very professional. Even though I did know her personally, I felt I did because of a first impression. You are all in my prayers.

I had some classes with Jane in the 90's. She was one of the sweetest, most sincerely beautiful people I have ever known. I was sorry to hear of her passing; though we did not keep in touch, whenever we saw each other it was as if time didn't matter, we were still connected. Prayers to her family. She was certainly an angel on earth. I will always remember her.
