Jann and I go way back. First, working together at Blue Cross back in the 70's. We were so close back then. WE found out we were pregnant at the very same time. She delivered 6 days after I did. Our babies grew up together. Lots of good times to be had. Miles got in the way to our friendship but she was always there in my mind. A wonderful friend, mother, sister and grandmother. So devoted to family.
She will leave a huge whole in so many hearts. God bless you Jann. I know you will be smiling down on all of us.
