Lynn and family so sorry for your loss. Jan always had a beautiful smile that made you feel so welcomed. Beautiful lady! My sisters got to know her and said she was an inspiration in her final days with her loving spirit. May the lord give you the strength you need to endure this loss.

I’m very sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Grief can be so hard especially the first year, and though it may seem like death is the final state of things, the Bible offers the hope of seeing again those lost in death: “And I have hope toward God, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) I hope you find some comfort in this Bible promise.
