Shows on & on every time I turn around I see something you gave me over the years, but most of all the memories I hold in my heart, you are with Aunt Mary & Cindy and they will be so happy to see you. We have another angel to watch over us give Bill a kiss from me and know you will be missed here on earth and I'll see you soon. Love,Rose

I have not seen Jan for a very long time but have very fond memories. Jan was lots of fun and had more energy than anyone I know. We had amazing “girls week” trips to Ocean City. She hosted wonderful parties and my nephew’s wedding. I will always remember how beautifully she decorated her home for Christmas.
RIP dear Jan. Our condolences to you Richard and family.
