Jan was absolutely loved and cherished by her family and friends; she was a great friend; she was a beautiful, kind, loving person; she loved every one and always saw the good in others.

Todd, it has been 10 years since
you went to be with the angels.
We think about you daily.
We will always love and miss you.
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand. That an angel
Came and called my name, taking
Me by the hand; The angel said my
Place was ready in Heaven far above,
And that I’d have to leave behind all
Those I dearly love. But when I walked
Through Heaven’s Gates, I felt so much
At home, for God looked down, smiling
At me, telling me “Welcome Home.”
When tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart, for every
Time you think of me, I’m right
There in your Heart.
