I am so sorry to hear of Jan’s passing but I smile knowing she is with Jesus !   Sam, I will never forget how the two of you slept together in one twin bed because you did not want to be apart for even one night. That is real love, one that is only found when Christ is at the center.  She was such a sweet and caring person and will be missed by many. We will all rejoice together again when we meet in heaven.

I am so sad to hear Janet has passed. She was my first mentor in regard to Parkinson's Disease and I was very thankful for the time she sat down with me and talked to me about her experience with PD.  I am so glad, though, that she no longer has to suffer from this horrible disease.

From: Tom & Bev Hawkins
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.  Jan was such a sweet lady, I will never forget how she loved on our babies so many years ago.  She just loved to hold and cuddle the little ones!  Thankful that she is now resting in her Savior's arms.
