So sorry to hear of Mrs. Thacher's passing. She was truly one of my favorite teachers. She was so patient.

She was such a lovely lady. I know she will be missed here, Heaven will have a great lady.

So sorry to hear about Leatha's passing. She was a wonderful lady. Her smile would light up the room. I worked with her at Donnellson Elementary School. It was my first job in education and Leatha's was so helpful. I learned a lot from her in those years before she retired, and I appreciated her kindness. I send my thoughts and prayers to all of her family and friends. Diana

My Mom was Helen Gregg Wilhem and I met Jane through her. Sorry for your loss and I am unable to be there tonight. No need to contact me with thanks for the note.

Larry, Roy, Linda...I am so very sorry to hear of your precious mother's passing. She was such a sweet person with the cutest smile. It was an honor to know her. During this difficult time, may you be comforted by the loving arms of our Heavenly Father with peace and hold on to those beautiful memories of her. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. She is walking on those streets of gold now!

I knew her first as "mrs Thacher," when Larry and I became friends in Jr. High. Jane has felt to me a Mother/Friend, from those frequent early over nighters in the Thacher home in school days to my infrequent visits these last years. She will always be in my heart.

Our condolences to Jane's family & friends. May God give you all comfort and peace during these difficult days. Jane was very special to her Sunday School Class & Bible Study Group at Pine Valley Baptist Church.
