Jan was an incredible woman.
Ever since meeting her through her son Donnie she was nothing but kind and loving towards me. Her smile and personality lit up every room she was in. I feel privileged to have known her. I still remember some of the funny conversations we had together, light arguments around tricky topics. It was always a pleasure to banter along with her.
Jan will be missed sorely by myself and those who knew her.
