Jan will be missed by her family and friends. She always showed concerned about those in her care and families. I always enjoyed working with her. May God be with her family and friends.

My mother Hazel Soles and I are sorry to hear of Jan's passing. We knew her from her work at Summer Breeze. She was always such a nice and compassionate person. We will miss her greatly. She and the family will be in our prayers.
