Love to all the Royer family, so glad we saw Aunt Janie in October. I will miss the way the sisters laughed and carried on when they were together…mom says Janie will always be the senior DA sister, she can’t be replaced. Hugs to all, especially during the holidays…Kathy

I fondly remember Jane’s great sense of humor from my days working at the store in Perkins. Jane and the other gals would get together for lunch and would include me in their laughs. Twenty eight years later at Eric’s graduation party we had a chance to laugh together again. I enjoyed every minute of it. We are so sorry for your loss.
