I like Sandi meet Jayne working for Michelin Tire , One of the best Ladies you could ever meet. Jayne was someone all of the people who knew her through the computer blog, would have loved her more if you had meet her in person. I worked with Jayne for over 20 years at Michelin. You will be missed more than words can say. Good Bye to a great Lady . Love your Red Headed Step Child .

Funny how one can come to love a stranger, someone you have never seen or met in person. But I loved and respected Diablo, her sense of humor , her common sense . I met her on Greta's blog many years ago and will always keep a special place in my heart for her. Rest In Peace good friend , our Diablo. Thanks for all of the hours of your wit and wisdom. God Bless You.

I , as others met Jayne on the Greta blog many years ago. As with others we shared the love of our country and freedoms with each other. We also had quite a few laughs over her Blog name, "Diablo." Even over the miles and not knowing our true identities, but sharing thoughts and laughs she became a friend to us on the Blog and as a "family" of sorts we are diminished by her Passing. Thank You and Rest in Peace Jayne.

I too had never met Jayne in person but felt like I had for many years. Because I along with many others talked with Jayne online. Some were closer. I can tell Jaynes entire family she is sadly missed, will never be forgotten and loved by many. PeterG

We are so saddened to hear of Jayne's passing. She was such a dear friend and was loved by all on the site where we all meet daily. We've known Jayne for many years and she was a delight, with a sharp wit and made us laugh. She will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace, dear lovely Jayne. Your friends at XirtaMatriX

I never met Jayne in person... we were on a blog together for years. She was a joy to "chat" with and never failed to make us laugh. My heart breaks that she is gone but know she is happy to be reunited with her husband. Good bye dear friend... you will never be forgotten.

Jayne was a dear friend for many years. First through Michelin Tire and later after retirement. She will be sorely missed. Thank you to Linda Whitmire for leaving me a voice mail; unfortunately I just now received it and will not be in time for the service. I will be there in my thoughts and will keep you all in my prayers.
