    You were a great aunt and I will miss you, especially during baseball games when you would yell at the tv. The indians stink without you rooting for them!

    Diane and family,
    I know what you have been through and all I can say is I am so sorry you had to endure such grief. Diane, you are such a wonderful person in SO MANY WAYS and I know what good care you took of your sister. I’m sure she was comforted just knowing you were there for her. How thrilled Janet must be to be healthy again in heaven and with her mom and dad. Please know you are in my prayers!

    I just wanted to offer my sincere condolenses to your family. I used to work with Jan at May Bank, and met with her a few times to hear her sing karaoke. She lived for her family, she loved everyone single member and talked often about them. I’m sure her passing will leave a huge hole in your family – but she is in a better place, along with other members of her family, who maybe need her a little more right now. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    My deepest sympathy to all of Jan’s family. I worked with Jan at May Bank and also earlier at Hills Dept. store. Jan talked about her nieces and nephews often. She shared pictures of family events with us at May Bank. It was clear that her family was very close. I know that closeness will give you strength. May God bless Jan and comfort you.

    I just heard about Jan’s passing. My sincere condolenses to your family. I worked with Jan at May Bank and she was a great person who was always a pleasure to be around, until she gave me crap about not bringing donuts into work….just kidding. We will miss her.

Please share your thoughts ...
