I was a high school classmate of Jan's. She was always full of fun and had a smile on her face. My heart goes out to all of her family. It is one of the hardest things that can be asked of a family to bare the loss of a daughter, sister, wife,mother, aunt. The only way is through God's grace. May God give you all strength.

Aunt Betty, Scotty and Nancy--I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Jan riding Susan, Dena and me around on her bicycle when we would come visit. I always thought she was so beautiful. We lost touch after Uncle Cliff died, but had recently connected on Facebook. I know from the prayers she sent to me for Daddy and Dean Jr on Facebook, that she loved the Lord and her family and is in a far better place. I will be remembering all of you in my prayers in the coming weeks. Hope Byars Patrick, Dean's daughter.

Jan has been such a wonderful neighbor to Danny & I. She's made us feel like we were in a small town back in the "good old days". She had the best brownie recipe, she loved to share her brownies but not that recipe! She & Danny always conversed back & forth about how may deer were in our backyards. We will miss her dearly. Our prayers go out to the whole family & Clayton please call if you need us anytime day or night.

I am so very sorry for the loss of your loved one. Like Clayton, I grew up in the Essary Springs/Pocahontas area. I only met Jan a couple of times, but she seemed like a very sweet lady. At this time, may God give you the strength, comfort, and peace as only He can. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
