I'm sorry I haven't posted earlier about Jan's memorial service. Both Gail and I attended. I met Gail for the first time at the chapel. She looks EXACTLY like she does on her photo's. She and her husband are both lovely people. Although it was not uinder the best circumstances that we met, I am glad I got to meet her. She is a strong warrior against our common ailment. To know she is "stable" is wonderful.
Jan had a traditional Church of Christ service. She had chosen three hymns she loved and all of us sang them. One I remember and knew well was "When We All Get to Heaven." That song is a joyous song full of Christian promises. Our Lord promises us that all Christians will meet again in heaven and "what a day of rejoicing that will be."
We met Lisa (Flicka) and Jan's beautiful daughters. The females in Jan's family all wore beautiful hats to celebrate Jan's life. More of Jan's hats were placed on the altar. Jan's Pastor spoke so lovingly of Jan and her feisty personality. It was obvious he thought very highly of her.
Lisa had one of her family members take a photo of Lisa, Gail and myself. She is supposed to post it on MedHelp this week. I know she is really tired out. She had to be at work today. (Monday)
I will truly miss Jan. Although I only knew her for about two years...I will miss her presence in my life.
