  1. I swear to you I love you
    And even though we’re apart right now, it’ll never keep me from you
    I love you from the beginning, I loved you till the end
    But I promise you this, it doesn’t stop then
    You’re my mom and always will be
    Though you left us here to grieve
    But that doesn’t matter, your completely free
    Your free from pain, your free from hurt
    Your free from everything bad on earth
    God called your name and you went right to him
    Now that your gone nothings what it would have been
    If only the I love you’s would bring you home
    You would’ve been home before you had gone
    But now goodbye but not forever
    I’ll sometime gain be with the best mom ever
    Nows the time where I show how much I care
    By crying and screaming how it isn’t fair
    And I know your looking down saying please don’t cry
    But I know I’m going to no matter how hard I try
    Seeing you so sick made me so sad
    And now that your gone makes me so mad
    But now your out of pain and that’s all that matters
    Even though letting you go left our hearts shattered
    Lifes not fair but you know what I’m going to do?
    I’m going to keep my head high just to prove to you
    That I may be a little girl but there’s so much I can do
    I’m going to change this world before I’m back with you
    Rest in Peace Mommy – Kay

  2. Dear Becky & Tom,
    I am so sorry to hear about
    Janie. I will truly miss her
    beautiful smile, her laugh and
    our private family stories. You
    raised a beautiful daughter and
    she raised two beautiful children. Janie’s proudest
    moments in life were Kay & Eddie. She is now their guardian
    angel in heaven. Her love will
    guide them thru life. Embrace
    her love and memories at this
    difficult time. My heart and
    love goes out to you.
    Love, Brenda Larrow

  3. Although I didn’t get many opportunities to spend time with Jane, whenever I did see her, she always had a smile on her face and the kindness in her heart shone through. While she came into our family half-way through her life and, sadly, has left it much too soon, I will always be grateful to her for being so generous about sharing her family, (Becky, Kay, and Eddie), with ours, especially with Tom. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing that so many people care about her and will keep her forever in our memories.

  4. Tom, Becky, Kay & Eddie – I’ll always remember Jane coming by to visit her “pups” and how much she enjoyed them. She was like another younger sister and I will miss her very much. I wish I had the attitude she had – I never saw her mad and she was always happy. Know Becky that you raised a wonderful daughter and she was so very lucky to have you and Tom around. I will miss having her and the kids just drop by to say hi! Love, Kathy

  5. Becky and Tom and Kay and Eddie….words can’t express how sad I am at your loss. This loss is immeasurable. Please, take your time with the grieving process…and know in your hearts that we here at Lahey are all here for you…

    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what’s to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    to sweet eternity.
    We all have different journeys,
    Different paths along the way,
    We all were meant to learn some things,
    but never meant to stay…
    Our destination is a place,
    Far greater than we know.
    For some the journey’s quicker,
    For some the journey’s slow.
    And when the journey finally ends,
    We’ll claim a great reward,
    And find an everlasting peace,
    Together with the Lord

  6. My heart goes out to Becky and her family. Tom’s kind and calm demeanor is a blessing to the family. Becky, you have a long road ahead of you; you lost a daughter, a best friend, and the mother of your grandchildren. With the strength you taught Jane, Tom’s kind ways, and the love of your grandchildren, Kay and Eddie, you will get through this difficult journey. You and your family are always in my thoughts. It will be a great honor to some day have the opportunity to meet Jane in heaven and finally get to see her beautiful face that goes with all of the beautiful stories you told me about your daughter and grandchildren.

    My deepest sympathy,

  11. Perhaps love is like a resting place
    A shelter from the storm
    It exists to give you comfort
    It is there to keep you warm
    And in those times of trouble
    When you are most alone
    The memory of love will bring you home

    Perhaps love is like a window
    Perhaps an open door
    It invites you to come closer
    It wants to show you more
    And even if you lose yourself
    And don’t know what to do
    The memory of love will see you through
    by John Denver

  13. Carney family and friends

    Jane taught us all to love and laugh, she was the first born of the in between generation. She loved her children and mother hard along with her extended family from the panhandle of Oklahoma to the Hills of New England which she shared with Eddie Conley and Tom, where her greatest gift of life was given to Rebbeca Kay and Edward Francis her kids. We admire Janie’s grace in life and strength in passing – Life is short she said, live it well. Dreamcatching her way to heaven she said “I love…..”
