Messages & Condolences

From Sarah Campbell...

Elaine & Family, I am so sorry to read of Jane’s passing. I will keep you in my prayers.

From Richard and Nancy Hernandez...

We were so saddened to hear of Janes passing.
We will always remember her kindness to our son Misha, and all the fun he had at her house with Chris, Nathaniel, and Jordan. Jane was the mom that would let Jordan give Misha a giant bowl of Lucky Charms for his birthday! We will also remember her enthusiastic involvement as a room mother at Pinckney elementary school back in the day.
With our deepest sympathy,

Richard & Nancy Hernandez

Elaine and family,
I was sad to read about the loss of your daughter, Jane. May your memories of her comfort you in this time of sorrow. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

From Sherry Tamerius...

I am so sorry to hear about Jane! I have known her since the mid 1980s when we both worked at KU’s Murphy Hall. Our paths crossed again when her son Jordan attended Riverside School and then again when her grandchildren went to Pinckney! She was a kind woman who did indeed enjoy her grandchildren! I will keep all of her family in my thoughts and prayers!

From M. Rose...

Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your beloved Mrs. Platt. May Almighty God give you the strength to carry on to the days ahead, and may the scriptural promise by Christ Jesus about the resurrection, as mentioned at John 5:28, bring you solace during this time of great sorrow.
