Jane Vick BLAND
November 5, 1920 - March 8, 2019
It is not easy to say goodbye to our loved ones.
We will miss their sage wisdom, smile and sense of humor.
We will miss seeing them, talking to them but death is not a final ending.
It is a rite of passage.
If Janie was able to talk to you today, she would tell you.
I am free of all my pain and suffering, I am no longer trapped in my body.
I delight in My Lord's presence daily,
I can laugh, dance and sing with my God, all my angels, my family and friends who have gone before me.
Do not weep for me for Heaven is a grand place.
