Dear Lane, girls, and your entire beloved family,
We are so saddened by the news about Janelle. What a true gift from God she is, with such a gentle spirit, yet such a deep and fierce faith in our blessed Savior. We cannot begin to imagine what you are going through, but we trust that you will be carried through it all in the love of our Lord and by the prayers of so many whose lives have been touched by Janelle. You have our love, sympathy and prayers.

Gentle spirit, quiet strength, servant heart...are just a few of the many attributes that come to mind when thinking of Janelle! She was a precious woman of God! Our hearts are broken for you, her dear family! You are in our constant prayers. It is certain that she is hearing a warm "Well done..." from the Savior whom she loved so much. Much love and sympathy to all of you. Chuck and Faith Sinclair

Lane and girls,
We are so sorry to hear of Janelle's sudden passing. Although it has been a number of years since we were all at Kudjip together, it seems like yesterday that we were all working in Papua New Guinea. We pray that the God of comfort will give your heart peace and healing in this difficult time.

The entire Zurcher family has blessed us across the years as we intersected in Africa and NTS. It was an honor and privilege to be associated with Janelle, Lane, and other members of the family in their service for our Lord. We will miss Janelle's bright smile, but we believe that Norman is rejoicing in a grand reunion!

Lane & Girls,
We were deeply saddenned in heart to hear of Janelle's passing. Our church was unbelievably blessed just a few months ago by Lane and Janelle's Sunday morning service with us. What great fellowship around the Sat PM restaurant table we had. Our love and prayers. Pastor Dave Childers and the people of Gateway Church of the Nazarene in Oskalooosa, IA.

To the Fosnaugh Family:
I also remember the missionary appointment service in 1988 when we were appointed together to be missionaries in the Church of the Nazarene. How wonderful for our paths to have crossed again years later for those brief years at Asia Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary. Out of a saddened heart I ask the God of all comfort to give each of you all the grace you need for every step of the way through the valley of the shadow of death.

To Lane and daughters, and Carol Zurcher and family, Fosnaugh family

Even though as Christians we do not grieve as others who have no hope, we still grieve deeply. Our hearts were broken when we heard of Janelle's home goingm and yet we pictured Norman Zurcher there greeting her and saying let me take you to Jesus.

Lane we will commit to pray for you and the gilrs, and not forget you as the days go by. Carol, Kay, Deb,and Bob, we

Dear Lane, Joy, Laura, Sarah,
Words cannot express how sorry we all are to hear about your loss. Janelle loved you all so much. We are praying for you and will keep praying for you. What do you do when your world is tipped on edge and you know it will never be the same? I only know that Janelle is dancing in heaven right now. She had such an eye for beauty, and now she is in the presence of the creator of beauty. May God comfort you and be very close to you. Love you guys.
