Jan's second surgery

I have just received word that they are taking Jan in for her second surgery shortly.

Thank you all for your prayers, kind thoughts and remembrances. They have been a comfort to us, and we have been printing them and reading them to Jan, even in her coma.

Jan, do not be afraid as you go into this surgery but let your spirit be close to God. As I was reading my bible this morning, I asked God to show me a verse that would be encouraging to you and your family. I came across this verse and something moved in my heart.

Blessed be the LORD! for he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy. The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. -Psalm 28:6-7

I love you Jan.

I found out about this tragedy late yesterday thru a mutual friend. I must say I was stunned and shocked at the news. I have many fond memories of some of the musicals that Jan and I were involved in. Although it has been a while since I last talked to her, she has been in my thoughts many times over the last while. I take comfort in knowing that she is a strong person in life and her faith. If anyone can overcome this...she can!
Myself, Patt, Yvonne, Garion...and now Elora are all praying for you Jan!!

Jan, Fede, David and family,

You are in my prayers and the sincere and heartfelt prayers of many others. God, the creator of heaven and earth, the originator and builder of Jan is with you making available to you all the strength that you require as you lean on Jesus.

Jan taught me that, "the way that I do one thing is the way that I do everything." Jan is always intolerant with half truths - she seeks the whole truth or nothing. I am praying that each of us will join her in that quest during this time when truth is most desparately needed.

May you experience the certain presence and closeness of Jesus Christ is this time of uncertainty.

You are loved.

Jeff

My Dear Jan

The light and love of the Lord shines so brightly from you. It is a light that carries us during this dark and difficult time. I am praying for you Jan - and singing Amazing Grace, a song that you sing with so much conviction of faith that it is uplifting - I am so blessed to have shared with you during the Tulip retreat. I pray that the Lord our Father holds you in His hand. Jan - you are so special and so loved and I thank you for sharing your faith with me with such joy. What a blessing you have been in my life.

To Jan's family and especially her husband - I pray that the Lord our God comforts you and supports you. My thoughts are with you throughout each day.
