  3. Jan, it has been 58 years since I first met you on a double date. You were sweet and cute then and you never changed. You will be missed for many years. Your smile at the SA Golf Event was always so welcoming. I hope my Larry helped welcome you when you arrived in heaven.

    Such a kind neighbor I remember when I was growing up. I’ve passed this info on to my parents and brother. Hope your well Blankenships. And for Jan, we’ll offer up a Mass.

    Pax Vobiscum et Requiescat in Pace Jan,
