My sympathies go out to the Strahler Family. As an employee 40 years ago, I was made to feel part of that family, and for that I will always be grateful.

Jane was a great lady, mother, wife, boss and friend. Working for Strahlers Foods was strenuous work, but a lot of fun. Jane never got mad, that's saying something! In my time as a driver I closed the van sliding door so hard it fell of! I slammed on the brakes once, crushing a gallon of mustard which forever stained a lot of the inside of the blue van to green. Mrs. Strahler just laughed and told me what to do to carry on! When I ran out of gas in front of the Clark County Jail (REALLY!) she told me to quickly get to the downtown Sohio gas station and get gas. I moved fast and didn't even get a ticket! Jane lived her faith, living the least among us as her own. If you don't think that there are great ladies among us, you didn't know Jane! The poor dear got to heaven with a "well done my good and faithful servant!" Oh, and I'll bet Ray met her with a stack of paperwork to do! God bless Jane and all her family!
