Some of my fondness memories are from Jan in OVAC. The times of Jan, Joe P. , Belinda and myself. The old caddies then the new rigs. We were a team. Thanks Jan for the great times. Rest in peace

Jan and I rode the daytime ambulance at OVAC for many years before she moved out of Ossining.....many many memories of lives impacted by her kindness. Especially will never forget that she was part of the crew that responded to take me to the hospital when I was due to give birth to my son....that day and the cornstarch will always be with me!!!!! May you rest in peace Jan...we miss you!
