Brenda, I am so sorry to hear of Jan's passing. I have been thinking about the old days in Corunna. Jan and I would sneak out at night and stand in the middle of the street and scream just as loud as we could and run back in the house. We had alot of fun. I wish we would have kept in touch. I will keep all your family in my prayers!!!
