JANE A MILLER
11-3-28 – 4-13-10

It’s been a year since you left us, and we all miss your wonderful smile, you’re never ending kindness, your great sense of humor and hearing about your wonderful adventures in life. You were such a role model and touched so many lives that it’s not uncommon to hear family and friends still seeking your words of wisdom, asking, “What would Jane say or what would Jane do?.”

Thank you for giving so selflessly while you were alive and even this past year in death. We are grateful that we were able to honor your request, which was to donate your body to The University of Hawaii, School of Medicine, Willed Body Program. Your contribution to education, medicine and scientific study was the greatest gift you could give.

You are an inspiration for love and life and we are forever loving you your family.
