Dear Leslie and Gary
I am so sorry to hear of Jan's passing . She was a dear and loving friend! Although we didn't see alot of each other the last few years, we were aware of our continued friendship. I know that she was very proud of both of you and spoke fondly of you.
Know you will miss her in the days to come. May God bless you and guide you in the days to come.
