Jerry, Karen, Kris, Mike and family....It really breaks my heart that I can't be with you all during this difficult time. I really enjoyed reconnecting with Aunt Jan and will miss discussing Casey, Nascar and NFL with her (even though she pulled for the wrong teams!!) I truly hope you can find peace and comfort in the wonderful memories. God bless.

Sadness does not begin to describe the emotions I feel at the loss of precious Jan. I remember her as a high school senior, all dressed up in crinolines and gown, ready to go to the senior prom (with the richest boy in Port St. Joe, I might add). Her lovely smile and the kindness of her soul were evident then, and remained constant throughout her life, as I witnessed at the family occasions that brought us together. To Jerry, Karen, Kristina, Taylor, Chase, Mike; you are in my heart and prayers during this most challenging time and for always.
