The world has lost a beautiful human being. Jan had a tremendous influence on my life while growing up. My heart is filled with sadness. She was a caring radiant and loving soul. During my teenage years she was a person I always felt I could talk to. No matter what my problems were. She always made me feel better. Her loving energy will be missed by all.
Dear Cathy and Ed, Please know that we are so sorry for your lose and our hearts go out to you both. The lose of a parent leaves such a big void in ones life and makes this a very difficult thing to deal with. Mom will be greatly missed. Hopefully, the wonderful memories that you and Mom have spent a lifetime building will soon ease the pain and sorrow you feel now. We are always here for you, should you need a shoulder to lean on or someone to talk to. Mom is in our thoughts and in our prayers as are you. May God keep her close and grant her eternal life. With deepest Sympathies and Love, Sharon,Rick and Craig.
