Mike and I send our heartfelt condolences to Greg and the extended family. Jane was a very active member of the Amyloidosis Support Group, providing support for others as she sought information to provide her with direction in treating the amyloidosis that plagued her body. Jane fought valiantly during her illness...she did not allow herself to be a victim of the disease. Greg also provided love and support to her during her illness. She loved her family as she shared about them in the meetings. She will be missed. We send our prayers and love to you all. Mike and Liz Will
