    Dear Aunt Jan,

    I have only a precious few and fond memories of you?
    The first is from the time when ya?ll moved into the house down the street from Grandma & Grandpa?s house on W Washington Katy?s old house?. I loved all those clocks! I remember walking down the street one day in front of that house, and you were either coming or going somewhere and I said and waived, ?Hi Aunt Jan!? from across the street, and you said, with that wonderful smile, ?Hi Hun?!
    Then a few years later, after you had moved to TN, and were back in H?ville in the spring for a visit, you came out to to see our farm. Well, while you were there a bad storm was approaching and it got real dark and windy and I remember you saying, ?I?m going back to Tennessee?! and I think I said, ?Don?t go, we have a basement?! There was a tornado later that afternoon and I think that was about the second time in my life that I saw a funnel cloud. My dad was working second shift in K.C. then, and I remember how worried Mom was for everybody at Grandma?s because of the storm?
    I remember surprising you with an unannounced visit at your house on Tulip Circle in Gallatin, the first time I drove through there on my way with my roommate to Ohio back in the late 70?s. You gave us a snack and showed us around the house and yard. I think you were just starting the daycare then?
    The last time I saw you there in Gallatin though was when I drove through there from Raleigh on my way to Grandma?s during the ?blizzard of 93? and I got stranded at Tina?s! You, Wade, Tina & me all went out for Chinese food?
    But the last time ever I saw you was at Grandpa?s funeral. I don?t ever remember a colder day than that January day we buried your daddy?
    I hope you don?t mind me saying so Uncle Wade, but my favorite image of my Aunt Jan will always be my Mom & Dad?s wedding picture, when they?re cutting the cake together and Aunt Jan is standing next to them with Glen Hook and she has the biggest grin on her face. I remember my Grandma showing me that picture once and I asked her what was going on then, and I will never forget her response. My tea totling, strict southern Baptist Grandmother said, ?Yeah, Glen goosed her?! I wonder whatever happed to that picture!
    Well, so long my dear Aunt Jan. I love you! Peace!

    Your third nephew,
    Mark
