siderea, bless her, found better words than I've been able to come up with — words that speak for me as well, save that i knew her a few years less:
I am out of words. I first met Jane at little over 20 years ago. I was one of very many blessed by her fond regard and her calm and gracious presence. It was Carolingia that brought us into contact. I am very grateful that I was able through Livejournal get to know her better outside of the Scadian context and enjoy her gentle counsel and cheerleading thereby while I pursued my career. I am so very sad at her passing.
