My late wife Jan is and always will be my hero. She and I met when we were teenagers, I married her two years later. She and I had such a wonderful marriage. We had our ups and our downs just like everyone else, but we had a warm and trusting relationship. God so richly blessed us with a fine, fine son, we built two great homes together and had two exchange students in our home plus countless friends of our son that still call us mom and dad to this day. I have always blessed and thanked God for sending Jan to me, she was able to get me to do so many things in my life with her that I'd have never done if I hadn't married her.
Jan was beautiful, she was warm, and she was a fabulous cook among so many other shining attributes. I have always said since her death, she wasn't perfect but she was perfect for me. We were so fortunate to have each other for 36 years; she died suddenly on Sept. 3, 2005. God was always the center of our union, He never turned his back on us in our times of need and we always kept Him number One in our relationship. I will always thank Him for sending her to me. I treasure your memory sweetheart, I always will.
