I know we are supposed to rejoice in you being in Glory, but I have to tell you that these past couple weeks, especially this past weekend was so incredibly difficult for me Auntie Jan. You would have been 73 on Easter Sunday. I wish you were still here so that we could have celebrated that...ALL OF US---TOGETHER. I try so hard to be strong, but Easter weekend, your birthday weekend, was so hard. You got to see GG and grandpa for your birthday for the first time in 26 years. I am so happy for that, but am I being selfish in saying that I wish you were with us this last birthday?!? Its so hard. I know we only got to see each other a few times a year. But I can't express how hard it is to know that every time I travel Northwest, I can't stop and see you or GG in person anymore. And with Laura being 4-5hours away. I have nothing down here in Springfield and I am losing all hope in ever becoming a youth pastor. You were my inspiration Aunt Jan. My motivator to keep pressing on in school and becoming what God called me to do...be a youth pastor and reach out to the students of tomorrow. But lately it doesnt seem worth it. It ever, Lord Jesus, that there is an angel that comes down to help humans from time to time, please, I beg you please, send me my GG and Auntie to point me back in the right direction, because this is hard to deal with. You say, Lord, that you will never give us something harder than we can handle...You are certainly pushing my limits on this one. Taking my GG and Auntie less than a month and a half from me and now my lil sister so far away. What do I do now? Where do I go from here? HOW DO I GET THERE?!?!?
I love you both so much GG and Auntie. And I miss you so much MORE!!!

Dearest Jan, No one could have been a better friend than you. You loved your family and your beautiful roses and now with your earthly journey at a close you enter new life, eternal life in the very heart of God. Thank you for blessing me with your love.

May each and every memory of Jan and all the good times you shared together comfort you in your time of sorrow. Jan I worked together for many years and kept in touch since St. Mary's closed. I will miss her and think of her fondly.
