Dear Amy and family-

So sorry to hear about Jan's passing. As a regular visitor to Peace, he was always warm, cheerful and friendly to me...from the very beginning over ten years ago, to just a short while ago in church. He had a pleasant personality and was friends with everybody. Truly a warm and caring person. I will miss seeing and talking with him in church. All of us who remain, will have to wait a little longer to see him again...
