    Carol and I send our heartfelt condolences to you, Bob, on the loss of Jane. She was both a wonderful wife and a helpmate and a real partner of yours in the many philanthropies in which you both engaged over the years. I am thinking especially of your support of Christopher Newport University to which you were both most generous. May she rest in peace. Anthony Santoro

    Dear Bob & family, My thoughts are with you during this difficult time and in prayers I wish for you strength and healing now and in the many days and years to come. Jane was both my dearest best friend and we always considered ourselves "sisters" in the truest sense. She will be in my heart and thoughts forever. Her deep sense of love & compassion for animals & her strong - stern dedication to character will always exemplify her true spirit. She cared deeply for the needs of others and was so unselfish in so many ways. Her love & charity for so many will long be remembered. She has left in our hearts and minds both a mark and challenge to all who knew her to work to be a better person and to leave the world in a much better place because of our having been here. Life is a better place for your having been here with us! With much love and pride to you my dearest friend & "special sister", Brenda
