Jane and John and family. Gordon and I grieve with you at the loss of your dear Mom, Jan. You have experienced a lot of sadness and have been in our thoughts and prayers since you lost your Dad. We don't know the answers, but we live in a fallen world, so good and bad, we suffer bad experiences. Our prayers are that God will wrap His Arms around you and comfort you through those of us who love Him. We will see your Mom and Dad in Heaven. Love and Prayers, The Darrahs,
