In Memory of Jan

Today we'd like to pause to remember one of our friends, Jan Struckhoff, mom to the Rocky Mount Meezers (Sabrina, Sam, and Simon) who passed away unexpectedly last week.  Mom Jan was one of the first bloggers Mom Paula met when she started blogging with Sweet Praline over 4 years ago.  We always enjoyed reading her blogs and seeing pictures of her beautiful Meezers.  Mom Jan always had such a beautiful smile and that's the way we want to remember her today.

Today is the memorial service for Mom Jan.  There is a memorial page for Mom Jan on the CB where you can post comments.  It's always hard to lose our furry furriends from the CB, but we weren't prepared for the friendships that would develop with the people behind the cats and the pain we'd feel in losing them.  We hope Jan is pain-free and at peace now.


Until we meet again . . .

  10. Each tribute for this special lady squeezes my heart to know she is gone. I did not know her well, but she was a gift to each and every friend she had.

    May the kitties comfort Jan's husband during this time of such grief...it will be hard to find the strength to go on, but as I did when my husband died, it's one paw in front of the other, until it gets easier...Sending our sympathies their way...
