We sure have a lot of good memories of Jan and Wally as we traveled many places following the kids on the BMX bikes. It would be hot and dirty but Jan and Wally were always happy to be at the races. Thinking and praying for you all!! They are missed!

May fond memories of Janice bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) www.jw.org

Dear Chris, Kevin, and families: So sorry to learn of Jannie's passing. She was such a fun person to be around, and it is comforting to know that she and Wally are together once again. I hope you have many wonderful memories to give you peace at this difficult time. Sorry I wasn't able to attend, I was actually hospitalized myself at that time. I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all of you, Mary
