Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry to hear about Jan. I just read it in the Paris News. Jan and her husband and me and my husband spent a lot of time together back in the late 60's and early 70's. She was a great friend, then moved away and I lost touch with them. I have thought of her often but never knew how to find out where she was. My prayers and thoughts are with the family.

  2. Our deepest sympathy for the family.We knew Jan many years ago. Please accept our condolences for your loss.
