Elaine and family,

I was so sorry to hear about Jane. Through the years I have heard you speak about how devoted she was to George and her children. She was such a sweet, caring mother, sister and daughter. May God keep her memory eternal. I am praying for your family.

I send my condolences as Jane was a childhood neighborhood friend. My prayers are with you all as family and loved ones. I was just thinking of Jane (we called her "Janie") as I was at my father's house (Don Horschler) down the street from Longhinis. I took a walk down the street reflecting on our enjoyable childhood and the many things we played together as kids! I am so thankful for the wonderful neighborhood and people that I was able to grow up with!!! Blessed with wonderful memories and I trust you all are as well! I live in Windsor, MA with my husband David and have 3 married children and 6 awesome grandchildren!!! I am a special education teacher and busy minister's wife. Our prayers are with you and loss of your loved one at this time!

Growing up I was at the Foster's house often. The frontyard sports, backyard games and all the antics that come with were monitored from the watchful kitchen windows. I recall our "kid moments" were more often handled with certain looks than speeches. I don't remember her doing a lot for herself back then but, in her quiet way, she did a lot for all us kids hanging around 12th Street. I always appreciated that. Rest in Peace.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. It was nice to see Lockport recently Sattending my Brother Vic's memorial. I have great memories visiting the family at the house next to St Dennis, the family picnics, Taverns with my Father. I have visited Asiago 3 or 4 times where the Longhini name is well known.
