I have so many memories of my times shared with "Sister" Jan. We shared our love of music, especially as a quartet in Sweet Adelines. Her smile was infectious, and her gentile spirit will always be remembered. I love you, sweet Jan.

Jan was one of my very special Sweet Adelineโ€™s sisters, who befriended me many years ago when I was a newcomer to the South. Her wit and humor will be long remembered, as well as her sweet tenor voice.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
