Ude and I wish to extend our condolences to Pete and the family in the loss of Jan. We are in Florida for the winter and unable to attend any services. Jan certainly has left a footprint on earth and many wonderful memories that will stay in everyone's hearts forever.
You will be in our prayers and thoughts during these difficult days ahead.
Sending our love,
Donna Immega

I'm so glad we got to spend those few vacation days together. They weren't as much fun as we had hoped but the time was important.
I am glad she is at rest and Peace in God's hands and not suffering anymore.
I am a god listener, Pete so if you ever need to talk, call.
love and prayers, Rita

There were no challenges Jan would/could not face. The challenges almost always resulted in improving the lives of others and her community. Her absence leaves a huge void in our world.
