My heart goes out to you all. Jan was an awesome person. When she laughed, everyone wanted to laugh along even if you didn’t know why she was laughing. No matter what life threw at her, she smiled through it and persevered. She fought a good fight and showed us all how to live to the very end. We will all miss her…

No doubt that anyone who knew Jan is a better person for it! Jan, you fought a good fight and I know that Heaven is going to be even a happier place with you in it! I have a feeling that you are already telling your funny stories (like that shopping trip we went on with Jan D)!! You’ll always be an inspiration to me and my forever friend. I’m thankful for having the honor of knowing you! Rest easy my friend.
