As I watched the events of September 11th unfold from my Manhattan apartment, little did I know that Jane and her sister-in-law Pat were on Flight 93. I had already received word of the loss of my best friend's brother at 1WTC earlier that day, when the call came in from my aunt telling me that Jane and Pat had perished in the crash. I was so deeply saddened and shocked to hear the news.
I knew Jane from the time I was a young girl growing up in Bayonne. She was a dear friend of my Aunt Grace and I would often see her at family functions. I will never forget her inner strength and tremendous faith and courage, and most importantly the support she gave my family in our time of sorrow. But what I will remember most is her shining smile and sincere warmth. I know she is still smiling down on all of us. She was truly an inspiration in life and we will remember her always with fondness and love.
God bless Jane and give her beloved family strength and courage during these difficult days.

Jane has two wonderful grandchildren here in our town - her son and daughter-in-law have a wonderful family and this must be a result of an upbringing of love and respect - may God be with the entire Folger family.

I did not know Jane personally, but only knew her through her son, Neil, who was one of my dearest friends in college. Neil spoke often and highly of his mother. I can only say that, if our children are a reflection of the work we put into their upbringing, then Neil was Jane's most magnificent reflection. He was my hero when my mom died. He was always there for me, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to laugh with. When he died, at such a young age, I felt that a ray of sunshine had been taken away from my life. Maybe God meant for Jane to be together again with her beloved son. I hope they found each other in heaven. May they both rest in peace.
