• "Jan, its been 2 years, and i'm still grieving, if not..."
    - Aaron Smith

Passed away in her sleep, after long illness, brought on by End Stage Renal Failure. Survived by her husband, Aaron W. Smith, and her two sons, Brandon Lee, and Christopher Charles; brothers, Hawk St. John, and Steven Hochwald, and her mother, Elaine Hochwald. Per her wishes, there will be no services, no burial, no wake. If you would like to honor her memory, take the time every day, to tell the one you love, how important they are to you, and tell them that you love them, the first thing every morning, and the last thing, every night. She did.
If you have found a smile
that is the sweetest one you've known,
If you have heard, within a voice,
the echoes of your own,
If you have felt a touch
that stirs the longings of your heart,
And still can feel that closeness
in the moments you're apart,
If you have filled with wonder
at the way two lives can blend
To weave a perfect pattern
that is seamless, end to end,
If you believe some things in life
are simply meant to be,
Then you have found your soul mate,
your heart's own destiny.
