Ahoy! From the (Backyard) Ocean

Hi friends. Jane wanted me to tell everyone how honored and humbled she is to have so many people expressing their love to her.

She slept much of the day, and at 4:00pm, decided it was time to "go to the beach" and soak her feet in the ocean.

Jane's dear friend, and motorcycle buddy (the one who organized the Woodstock's Pizza fund-raiser) came over and presented Jane with the gift from the fund-raiser.

We were astonished, to say the least! Both Jane and I are overcome by the generosity of those who care for us. We cannot begin to thank everyone individually, so please accept our THANK YOU to each and everyone who have given their money, time, labor, friendship, prayers, and love to our family!

Jane's niece and nephew flew in from California today, and I was able to ride my motorcycle out to I-5 and Hwy 34 intersection to meet them and give them an escort to our home. The weather was beautiful today! Tomorrow will be a time of family gathering, talking about the memorial service here, and in San Jose, and just relaxing in the home.

Jane's sister (one who is still in San Jose right now) sent us some papers from Jane's childhood; a report card from 5th grade, some theme papers, etc. One such theme titled, "Me, Myself, and I" will be shared piece by piece over the next few days in her blog, so read there for a glimpse at Jane's life when she was 12 years old.

I took this photo of Jane in the backyard today, soaking her feet in the "ocean" and asked her if it was ok to share it on the blog. She said, "I don't look very sick, do I?"

"Other than weighing only about 105 lbs. now, I guess not, Janey."
