ADD A MEMORY
Candy and Bob Levy

I met Bob and Janice in Aruba in 1980. I was warmly welcomed by her and attended social events at her home. I became immediately aware that Jan was a fabulous cook and a wonderful entertainer. She taught our daughter, Jessica, at the Seroe Colorado pre-school. She was active in the community in general. Above all, what stands out in my mind is that Jan was extremely generous and loved and admired by all. She was truly a lady.

Jan, Bob and Jane were an important part of our lives in Aruba.

Bob and I send our sincere condolences to Bob and family.

Warmest regards,

Candy Levy

We always talk of Jan and Bob, as one. We first met during a gathering at Emmerson Knapp’s home in December 1972. We will always be grateful for meeting you and being able to share part of your life. We often talk of the special times we had in Libya and Aruba and we will continue to do this as long as we live. Carole has prepared Jan’s spiced peaches and copper pennies almost every Christmas since 1972; this will continue to be a special memory of Jan. We agree with you Bob, Jan was a wonderful person. It will be sad knowing that Jan is no longer with you, but we will always think of you both as being together.
Rest in peace Jan, our thoughts are with you, Bob and all your family.

Janice Seldomridge was my friend. She came into my life as an extra bonus from my decades long essential friendship with her daughter Anne. Her passing is as meaningful to me as that of my own dear mother; I mourn and celebrate this beautiful and graceful woman and feel privileged that I enjoyed so many happy experiences with her and her family that she loved so well.

Her crossing was sweet and due. She will be forever loved in this world and in her new home, beyond.

With love and gratitude.
