Thank You: We would like to thank everyone for their support, encouragement, prayers, cards and kind words, as we continue to grieve the loss of our dear son, Jeremy. We would ask that you continue to hold us up in prayer, as the road is very difficult. We believe it has been your prayers, that have sustained us, and it is so very important to be a part of this community. Remember, that life is sometimes short, therefore, treat each day as if it may be your last, making Jesus, your Saviour and Lord. Jerry and Ann Jansen and family.
