I met Jan at Green Terrance in Moultrie,, around 20 years ago, We became best friends, I will never forget her kindness and love toward elderly people. She also loved children. She was a very good hearted person, always willing to help others, not too many people like her. Prayers for the family.

I will miss Jan very much as I know y’all will. I’m praying for all the family Dec 21 2021 8:13 PM
