We will forever love you Jan!!!!!

After High School there are very few people I kept in contact with. (Pre-Facebook it wasnt easy). For 20 years Jan was the best card sender (Christmas, birthday, Congratulations, etc. ), great emailer and random phone checks.

We talked about getting together forever and finally in May she and Jason came to Arizona for the wedding.

I will forever thank God for the wisdom to allow this to happen. The ability to really know the grown up Jan in the last 8 months of her life was a gift that I will always cherish. Honestly one of the smartest women I know, great commonalities, a kind loving wife/sister/friend and a hell of a fighter!
Jan, passed away Saturday at the age of 40. Rest in Peace -see you on the other side.

I love this picture. I am so thankful that I got to reconnect with her at your wedding and through facebook. I am still stunned. It seems so unreal.
