Instead of a standard statement we have decided to have a few friends/ family write their thoughts. In lieu of a service, mom would have wanted everyone who can, to make a donation to their favorite animal rescue in her name. Her family will miss her.
“Mommy Jan “.
There will be a huge void now without you. For your friends that you fiercely cared for and for the senior dogs you worked so hard to save daily.
You tirelessly advocated for animals even when you said your very soul ached at the sad situations.
Your own home was filled with neverending caring for your ‘”Furgang “. Every day feedings and medicating of your older dogs that no one wanted.
I met you and Lori 26 years ago. I loved you from then on. Who couldn’t? You had a passion for your friends no one else has ever had. I felt cared for. I learned about acceptance from you and I adored your wit and stamina.
We shared a love of animals. .
You the doggies and I the
kitties. We shared the fun and the sad endings too.
Jan firmly believed that Jesus died for her.
I’m positive she is in Heaven. Absence from the body is presence with the Lord.
In Heaven we’ll all have joyous jobs to do. Guess what Jan hoped she’d get to do?
Jan leaving was one of the last best parts of the St. Petersburg to have gone for good. She outlived most and out-laughed them all. My neighbor and best bud.. miss you already. Love always Bruce and the 700 block 34th Ave. South Pack.
From the moment I arrived in Florida Jan accepted me into her circle of friends. They first time we met it was if we had been friends for years. She was sweet and kind and caring. She also had a stubborn and salty side that brought me much amusement and laughter. Fiercely loyal for not only her human friends but her animal friends as well. I will miss are daily chats greatly. She was my “Ladybug” and I will always love her and hold a special place in my heart for her. My deepest sympathies go out to her family and many friends. My you rest In peace Ladybug.
