Benefit Dance for Jan!

Hello Everyone.

It's me again, Angela, Jan's cousin. I just wanted to remind everyone about the benefit dance for Jan. Plans are well underway, tickets are now available at $15 each or $25 a couple through the following means:

Fede & Jan fede_carrillo -at-
Tina Larsen Orillia 705-326-5516
Louise Erhart louise.erhart054 -at-
Angela Black 905-432-3426 or garden.junkie -at-

(Note: replace -at- with @ for the actual email addresses.)

Tickets will also be available at the door, however if you do plan to purchase your ticket at the door, it would be very much appreciated if you could email or call me to let me know you're coming. This way I will be more able to judge for food and the bar.

Attendance to this function is critical, not only to help raise money but to show Jan how much we really care! Just imagine how Jan is going to feel when she sees all her friends and family joined together in so much love and support? This is the opportunity we've all be waiting for, let's give back to the Jan who has given so much of herself to others.

We are still in great need of items or services for our raffles, silent auction and games. These items could include gift certificates and new household items, anything sports, crafts, gift baskets etc. Go together with a friend or a group, be creative, be unusual! If anyone can help out please email me at garden.junkie -at- (note the . and replace -at- with @)

Date: November 4, 2006
Time: 7:00 P.M. This is an early start for people who are from out of town. Please try to be on time.

Hi Jan! I'm looking forward to your party and hoping that we have a way of getting there even if it eventually means taking the bus and staying at a motel.

I've been wanting to visit you but the transit strike here in Oshawa and lack of funds have made things kind of difficult for us so the next time I see you will probably be at the party after all.

Hugs, 'Ret

Dear Jan & Fede,

I continue to read your blogs regularly (probably every couple days or so). Jan I am so pleased with your recovery. I know it is not easy & you have your up & down times. Fede & Jan my heart goes out to both of you & I am inspired that both you of in terms of your love for each, perservance and dedication to keep on going no matter how hard it may seems in the moment. I trust that God is guiding both of you & has a special plan for both of you. Fede I know this is not easy for you at times dealing what at times seems impossible but I trust that your patience & heart is listened to my God & that he gets you both somehow on track. I know at the moment it may not seem that way. But I know that Jan has made significant steps forwards since Feb & I am grateful to God.
Thank you Fede for you blogs. Jan,
I will keep in touch & see you soon.
I pray for you & you are with me in spirit. You will always be a good friend & sister in God.
I love you very much
