So sorry for your loss. Jannie was a wonderful cousin. We remember she was really talented at making crafts and seeing her at the Haslett craft shows.

I knew Jan from work at the Liquor Control Commission. We used to sit and do some needle point work during lunchtime. She was a real nice person. I'm so sorry for your loss.
