Jan was a wonderful friend and her love for Christ was always obvious as shown in her smile and her love for people and animals. Prayers for all who are also grieving the loss of such a wonderful lady. Rest in peace and fly high with the angels, Jan.

Jan was a wonderful caregiver to my mother. She also was a friend to my father, and helped him through the transition of my mother's passing. We are all very grateful for her caring and compassion.
