So Thankful

I’m heading out of the country for a vacation – but I wanted to take a moment to remember my Aunt Jan. She passed away this morning after battling ovarian cancer for more than ten years. Ten years? What an amazing woman. She fought and fought and beat it a few times. But there was never a time when she allowed it to take her down. She was positive and got everything she could out of life. I’m so lucky she was able to spend time with my kids. I’m especially lucky to have grown up with her as an influence.I will miss her so much. But I’m so thankful she isn’t in pain anymore. My Uncle Chuck was an amazing rock to be with her through it all.

I love you Aunt Jan!

    Jan was a great example of courage and dignity under fire. She always seemed so up-beat and glowing, in spite of her illness.
    Thanks for sharing this Jen. I can’t believe how much your daughter looks like her.
