Jan, our heartfelt condolences go out to you. We just read the Winneconne News ( a bit late I’m afraid) and read about Bill. He seemed so strong the last time we saw you and Bill in church that it came as a surprise. Trust your faith, family, and friends during this difficult time...we will keep you in our prayers Al & Cindy

It's hard to understand why people are taken from us, but, Jan, find comfort in knowing you were a special part of a well-lived Life.
