I am so sorry for the loss of ms. Jane. I was her nurse the first night she was in the hospital. I will never forget how incredibly kind and funny she was to us right away. Immediately making us laugh. This is so heartbreaking to hear this news. She talked about how much she loves her family and grandkids. I could tell just from the short time I took care of her how great of a person she was! May she Rest In Peace.
I will always remember Jane Clare as a special friend and Ohana. She brought such joy and laughter to anyone she met. I enjoyed many years exploring Hawaii with her, I can not even think of Hawaii without her . She showed me how to see the beauty and happiness in every day . I will miss her and her many many stories . A hui hou Jane Clare! Aloha
