Comments:

After Tee Jay, I attended Louisburg College where I met Harriette, my wife of 52 years. After Louisburg College, I attended Virginia Tech majoring in Electrical Engineering.

After college I worked for Aetna Life & Casualty, Travelers Insurance, and St. Paul Insurance companies as a Senior Risk Control Consultant, Manager and Regional Manager. I obtained my Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation in 1978.

Harriette and I have had a sailboat in Urbanna since 1999 and moved to Urbanna in 2007. Harriette retired as a Vice President for BB&T in 2008 and I retired in May 2011 and we enjoy sailing and traveling.

We spent Easter 3 years ago in Eastern Europe on the Danube. We visited Prague, Salzburg, Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest. We also visited the California Coast and Yosemite in 2015. We love to travel and are still trying to decide on where to go for our next trip, Alaska, Glazier National Park or Croatia on the Adriatic Sea.

In 2018 we are in the Florida Keys to escape the harsh Virginia February. The temperatures at our home in Urbanna, Virginia have have been in the upper 50's and 60's and 70's every since we left, but we are loving it at Key Colony Beach Point where the temperatures are in the low 80's.

Below is a very special letter written by Sue Antonick about her life-long friend Jane Sydney.  Jane Sydney’s family asked Sue to speak at the memorial service instead this letter was read by the minister during the service.  Thank you, Sue, for sharing it with us.  It speaks so well of the people and relationship that are Jane Sydney and you.


God blesses us during our lives with many gifts…Jane Sydney was a special gift to me and many other friends.

Jane Sydney and I were born at the same hospital exactly one week apart but didn’t meet until we were in primary school at Albert H. Hill. 

Through the years over Reese Cups and ice cream, Jane Sydney and I shared laughter, tears and many confidences.  It was a comfort knowing she was there.  She was always encouraging and understanding.  She never judged but listened with care and kindness.    

Jane Sydney was always very popular during our school years – all the boys had crushes on her and the girls loved the pretty outfits designed and made by her Mom.  Jane Sydney’s smile and warm personality drew others to her.  She loved to dance and was one of Miss Frye’s best students!!!  She was a cheerleader captain, prom queen, sorority president and dance instructor at Fred Astaire.  I wouldn’t call her a hoarder BUT she saved everything – a wonderful treasure chest of people, places and events. 

We were so fortunate to have dear friends – she named us the “big six” when we were in Jr. High School.  Our little group grew in numbers as we entered high school. And, as adults, we continued close relationships.  Time and distance eventually scattered us but we continued to make efforts to get together – often taking fun trips or gathering for an old fashion pajama party.   

It was so sweet when the college friendship between Mike and Jane Sydney became a committed life together – they were wonderful, loving partners.  And, oh my goodness, how excited she was to become a mother.  During school, the two of us were never known as high scholars so you can imagine her excitement when Ashley went to UVA and Mary Douglas to W&M.  She adored her girls.  Her heart held an abundance of joy.  She welcomed Dustin and Mark with love and was ecstatic when Cameron, Emmie, Sydney and Sam came along.  Knowing Mary Douglas and Ashley is knowing Jane Sydney – they are very special.

Jane Sydney was my precious friend.  She, her Mom and Dad were true blessings in my life. There are so many things in life to be grateful for and the sweetest ones are friendships and memories.

I always remember Tommy as the tight end on the Tee Jay football team.  Our sons knew each other and we continued that connection after high school.  Tommy son Scot and my son Michael were good friends and we lost them way too soon.  My prayers for comfort and God’s peace go out to Karen and the family.

A group of us from the Tee Jay Class of 1962 attended Jane Sydney's memorial service yesterday.  It was a beautiful service and it was wonderful to be there with so many friends.  The minister read a wonderful letter from Sue Antonick about her relationship with Jane Sydney since grade school.  I hope Sue will let me have a copy to post here.  What a wonderful loving relation have they have had over all these years.

Jane Sydney was a special person as already attested to on this page and her life long ministry with her husband the Reverend Mike Meloy.  She was an example of that special bond that all of us in a class still have with one another.  Thank you, Cathy Morton Rose and John Rose, for having us to your home after the service.

Rest In Peace Jane Sydney.

It looks like Urbanna will dodge the bullet, but Florence appears to be coming directly at you and Jim. I hope y'all are prepared and have evacuated if need be. Thinking of you and praying that you are safe.
