Dear Family, I share prayers with you and so many friends of Jan, asking God to bring comfort to you. I am a friend who shared retirement time with John and Jan and I am grateful for all the laughs and good times we had with both of them. Jan was an independent, witty gal who continued to find ways to keep giving to others. You all brought comfort being with her through her last days.
