Frank and Diana, Neil, Gail, Susan and David: I was so sorry to hear of Jane's passing. Please accept my condolences. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were kids, playing in each other's back yards. I always will fondly remember those times. I also want to thank you for your long friendship with my mom. I would talk to her on the phone and she would frequently say how you'd invited her over for dinner and family events. That was always so nice of you, and I will forever be grateful.

Went to high school with Jane & she is part of my favorite memories from then. Her bright smile & uplifting spirit was a constant and although we lost touch over the years, facebook made it possible to reconnect & we were able to have some more good times together with the best of friends. Heaven has an angel for sure and I send my love & prayers to family & friends that loved her so much. She will always be with you. Rest in Peace my beautiful friend. Christine Diabo

Jane and I were classmates at New Dorp High School and had not been in touch for a long time; nevertheless her passing brings deep sadness. I remember her bright face and personality, her passion and gift for dance, her easy laugh. Rest in peace; Jane, and condolences to her family.

Jane was my mentor when I started teaching over 8 years ago. She was smart, kind, patient, and funny. She gave me an awesome start and I am eternally grateful. May her soul rest in peace. My prayers are with her family during this tough time.

My deepest sympathies to Stephen, Ian, Logan and the Besignano family. Jane was and always be in my heart. Her friendship since 7th grade has been one that I will forever be grateful to have had. Her beautiful smile, the care she gave when she spoke to you about the littlest of things and the contagious laugh she had whether it be a joke or something silly is will be what I remember the most. Rest in Peace my beautiful friend. Until we see each other again. With Love, Tina Cicchetti & Family
