Miss Jana, I will miss your sweet personality, your beautiful music and most of all your friendship. You have left us way too soon but now we have another Angel to watch over us.

Our deepest sympathy to all of her family. She was so dedicated to our church and to our Lord. She touched so many lives with her smile and with her music. Now, she is singing and playing for our Lord and Savior. God Bless you. We grieve together for someone we loved so very much but knowing we will see her again. She is truly an angel! We miss her!
