So very heart broken for my family. It's been a tough week. I am thinking and praying for us all. Jan was the kindest soul I've ever met. She was truly a kind and good person. I got such a kick out of having her as part of my family. Thank you for being a part of my life. You will forever be in our hearts

Dear Aunt Jan, Having the days and time with you in my life made those moments a good life for me in those moments. Even without you around as much as it was for me when I was younger you still had a place in my heart always with great memories to have. I Love You Aunt Jan and will miss you. To Cousin Joe, Cousin Shelly and Cousin Mike, I am sorry for your loss. And I hope the best for all 3 of you through this time and for your Families. Your Mom was an amazing Women. Which you all know that but I as well know that. I pray that through time that it becomes easier for all of you to beable to handle that now both your Parents aren't here as I have had to deal with. I can promise you all that it becomes more of having to be used to it rather than well I haven't gotten to that part in my life on finishing that statement. Any ways God Bless all of You and I know Uncle Fred is at that Pearly Gate walking her in. Love You all and Miss everyone of you. Love Shirley
