    I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I personally know the loss of both a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. Please take comfort in the Bible’s promise for the future (Acts 24:15)

    Tom and Family: We have been neighbors for so many years watching the changes throughout the years. Although not next door Jan always had a warm smile and wave when we would pass each other in our cars. Tom you had a blessed life with the lady of a lifetime. God bless you all.

    I am very saddened to hear of Jan’s passing. As Liberty Coach’s CPA for nearly 20 years, I talked with her often. She was such a wonderfully pleasant person. She would always ask about my family and, in turn, tell me all about hers. I hope you are comforted knowing how much she loved you all. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
