A Special Poem written by Jan:

If family and friends are out there,

Well I have one last thing to say,

I loved you also very much

I had really hoped to stay

But since I know that cannot be

Please live your life to the fullest

In memory of me ~

My sense of direction was always bad

But don’t despair, I’ll find my way

They say you need only follow the light

So I’ll do my best with all my might

I had a most terrific life

Twas you who made it so

And so I won’t make a fuss

I’ll just GO! Jan
