Amy, My sincere sympathies to you, Sam, and your entire family. Your children were lucky to have Grandma close to share in their lives. Those will be great memories for them and you. May your mom rest in the peace of the Risen Christ and His Father in heaven. Our prayers for all of you. Rita and Dave Sevart

Jan Ramsey has been someone I admired since 1987 - the year I moved across the street from the Ramsey family, newly married and soon expecting my first child. Her kindness and friendship, and especially her wonderful example, meant so much to me as a new stay-at-home mother. After we moved from the neighborhood, I received a Christmas card from Jan every year - along with an update about her family that she loved and was so very proud of. I envision her now, wearing a heavenly crown that she very much earned by shining His light so brighly for all who knew her. The Ramsey family will continue to be in my prayers - but always know how very proud of all of you, your mother and grandmother was. Rest in peace, Jan.
