Cose was fun to be with! She always made us welcome when we visited Wisconsin and she and Bob left our family with happy memories when they visited during Jane's stay in the UK. Enjoy celebrating a life on 25th October!

Dearest Jane and family--We have all born witness to the end of our mothers' journeys here on Earth over the past months and it has not been easy. I find comfort in believing that they are now both free to continue the next legs of their journeys free of the physical ailments they endured. Who knows? Maybe they are both communing somewhere right now "comparing notes" about us Jane. While it certainly frequently did not feel like it, we both really were blessed with moms who had high and sometimes expectations for us.
Like Cose, Jane and I are Wisconsin alumni having met while students there. I will never forget the sight of Cose unsuccessfully attempting to maneuver the biggest, longest red station wagon I had ever seen through the underground parking lot of the hotel she was staying at when she came to visit Jane. Jane had to take over to get us out of there--us being several friends who were treated to dinner by Cose.
Throughout the albeit limited contacts I have had with Cose over the course of the 40+ year friendship Jane and I have shared, Cose was always welcoming and gracious and truly interested in getting to know Jane's friends. Her vitality and zest for life and all it offered has been admirable. Much respect for the family legacy Cose (and Bob) created and to a life fully lived.
Love, Kim Paige
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I am SO sorry to hear of Cose's passing, but celebrate her long and full life! Cose Lang was someone who my parents spoke of often; so much so, that I feel I knew her better than maybe I did. I cannot remember a time growing up in the Pooler Family when Cose Lang, or another member of the Lang Family was not part of the conversation, weekend social activities, or treasured memories. As the youngest of the children, I may have missed out on all the fun early on, BUT I feel I made up for it as I grew into adulthood. Cose, a dear friend of my mom's, has always been there for our family. I will miss the Friday night dinners at the AYC hearing about her life stories; I will miss the thoughtful gestures she extended to our family during happy and sad times; and I will miss her witty sense of humor and stylish ways. But mostly, I will miss Cose, a gift to everyone who she came in contact with. Rest well Cose---you are already missed, but will forever be remembered in our hearts. Lovingly, Lisa Pooler Lesselyong and Family
