I hope he has had to spend every day into eternity getting his head chopped off.

Both Gareth and I mention Lady Jane's conversations about religion with the Benedictine monk who would be the last Abbot of Westminster, John Feckenham, but it is important to note that neither Jane nor John ever expected to see each other in heaven: she thought him condemned to hell for idolatry and he the same of her for heresy. That's according to David Knowles, anyway.
