Dear Gene and Family, When a Loved one dies, we will miss them and we will mourn... ...and that is OK. We can now rejoice that Jan is now on Safe Shores and soon we (See Rev. 21 v 4) will thank God for the Blessings of the time you all did have with Jan, and that you were able to spend it over her long lifetime!... ... ..We Share Your Loss but now it is God's Gain! Fred, Dot, Doug and Dane Lauver. Henderson KY.

Dear Hackenberger Family, I so well remember Jan when I would come to visit Aunt Dot & Uncle Herb (Goodling) - I believe they were living on Pine St? in Thompsontown and Jan and her family were neighbors. I remember Jan so well - such a good neighbor and friend to all. I can only sympathize with your loss. My prayers are for peace, comfort and God's presence to be with you at this time. With Christ's love, Nan Goodling Yeater
