I remember the first time I met Jan. My sister Karen and Lowell were living in Spokane . Christmas of 1979 I think. I went over to visit Karen and Lowell. We went to Jan's for Christmas, Jan got me a gift even though she didn't know me. Thought it was very sweet and thoughtful of her to think of me. It was a bottle of perfume. Jan was a very sweet lady. Will miss her very much.
