    Tina and Rebecca, Jane and I are thinking of you. She was a wonderful person and enjoyed you guys so much. We are very sad to learn she passed away. Shocked frankly. As you have often heard, we have many great memories from our childhoods of family get togethers and fun times. I will always cherish those memories of my cousin Jan, and i will miss her and we didn’t get a lot of face time in the past years but we could keep in touch with messages on line. I really hope the past good memories and times are a comfort to you all. Her sisters are dear cousins, and we grew up close and never forgot all the wonderful times we had, and Jan was always right there too. I wanted to let you know we were thinking of you all and you have our deepest sympathies.
