Jan Waddell (anniebc here) - 7th August Jan lost her courageous long battle.  She went peacefully at Southland Hospice, Invercargill, New Zealand . She fought till the end and her family and friends greatly miss her. She was the most wonderful, loving, caring and giving person you could ever meet.  She will be missed by her family and her many friends from all over the world. Rest in power, Jan

Oh,... I am so saddened to hear this.  My heart goes out to her family and friends. Ed and I had the opportunity to meat Jan, at one of the AMC's. She will be missed.

Thank you Matt, for informing us. It's a very sad day. I hope you are doing well.

RIP -Jan

AMG has lost yet one more member of the family, My Darling Jan, know you are deeply missed but I/we know you are finally a peace.
  I'm sure that Ric, Moffie, and Joe have welcomed you with the other AMG folks there and I'm sure that Rocky is still 'herding' his ducks.

Hugs to you all.  CYA Later!

Sad news, and regrettably, I only chatted with Jan once, wish it had been more.

RIP Jan, and wishing friends and family strength during this time.

This hit me right in the chest. 

Jan was such a beautiful soul here on the forums.  Condolences to her husband, family, and friends.

Rest in paradise Jan..

I'm not sure exactly where this comment belongs, and Jim Allen, feel free to move it to wherever it should be. 
 I just viewed the service for our anniedc (Jan Waddell) and it was awesome, I was not surprised by the number of people actually there. I'm sure My Darling Jan was impressed by the number of people that she has effected.
  That Lady will be greatly missed.

My beloved Janno is gone.

I don't have words for this.

My words are neither the point nor the matter. I'll leave it to Andy Velez (of sainted memory) who in times like this would point to the classics;

I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.  Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.

Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you.
Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust.
A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew,
A formula, a phrase remains,—but the best is lost.

The answers quick and keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,—
They are gone.  They are gone to feed the roses.  Elegant and curled
Is the blossom.  Fragrant is the blossom.  I know.  But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.

Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know.  But I do not approve.  And I am not resigned.

Dirge Without Music - Edna St Vincent Millay

I'll see you soon.
