I loved our weekly "across-the-miles" phone conversations with each other, discussing Bible verses and then talking to God together. Thanks to Jan who reminded me to "stop and rest" each day, and to continue prayers on behalf of our precious children and grandchildren. May we, like Jan did, begin every morning connecting to the Lord with thankfulness, asking "How would You like me to serve You today?"

Mike and I are grateful for special "Jan" memories.

I loved you my sweet cousin. Our visits at the boat...I moved to Youngsville, so we didn’t get to visit after that. So saddened to hear of the passing. Say hello to Mom & Dad & Uncle Bea & Aunt Irona for me! Heartfelt condolences to family!
