Peeps, I just got the mail this very minute and had to come right back inside and share the news. In our mailbox were two, count 'em, two cards from SOUTH DAKOTA.

Jane was there, with you, in all fifty states. She was there, she was there, she was there! 

Thank you, friends. These cards, each and every one, mean more to me than I can express. Thank you all.

It brought tears to my eyes to read this. Jane was there, in all fifty states. Thank you South Dakota for coming through.

Jane was so very here.

Tia, for whatever reason, I haven't posted since the wonderful memorial tribute to Jane. But, I simply could not let this extraordinary milestone pass without acknowledging how extra---ordinary this actually is.

I know the Internet makes so many connections possible, but could anyone among us ever have imagined the impact this gorgeous little, precious blue-eyed girl would have had on the entire country, copy all fifty states, and the world beyond?

Your gifted writing introduced all of us to her. Your selfless sharing of all the ups and downs, ins and outs, kept us connected.

But, her personality won our hearts.

Jane was indeed here. And, will always be.

And, her Mom? To borrow a phrase from my much younger family members, she rocks!!! Love, Ann

That is soooo cool!!! WHat I think I love most is that just the other day you were missing her so and that empty spot was so close to the surface and raw. A few days later another declaration that Jane was indeed here arrives on your doorstep! A reminder if you will that even if gone in body her spirit is still going strong and her energy still surrounds you all!! 50 states!! Most people in an entire lifetime don't touch 50 states worth of people! Glad that once again Jane shows us all just how HERE she was!! and is in her own way!

What an amazing milestone - YAY!!

All 50 States - I hadn't realized how much I would actually feel that as a milestone. Til I felt the bump in my heart!

Jane was here ... I'm thinking I'm going to have to start saying Jane is here! :)

<3 Cindy
