I remember with love my two meetings with Jane in Dunhan. Exactly this last Monday I referred to Jane' presence in my first steps in AI. I hope Ralph could meet comfort in the many lived stories in the many years that they spent together.

I am very very sad about your going. My sister I met you at JO'BERG year 2015. I was very new in the appreciative inquiry activities. I wanted to touch base with almost everyone in the conference, your smile, kind works..... I can't just imagine that you have gone to rest with our unseen fathers. I treasurer your words of wisdom; this very statement will live in the diary of my memory ....'Just start spreading a positive virus and watch it grow..'- my sister I will try to spread the gospel of Taos Institute in Kenya and the larger world to make sure that a positive virus will grow to hold your love for the institute and her Associate members. Go well my sister

It was a great privilege to meet and get to know Jane. She was a remarkable woman, leader and teacher. We were fortunate to have Jane, Ralph and Mo (Maureen) bring appreciative inquiry into our work and into our lives. Thank you Jane for your energy, your passion and your genuine caring for the hopes and challenges of others. Thank you for sharing the power and beauty of appreciative inquiry with us.
