    Sadly I regret the time passed and our lost friendship, but I will always remember my old friend Jan, and the many good times we shared as young teens. May you drive into eternity Jan, just like back in our days in the winter of 1970, with the tunes blaring, the heat blasting, and the top down on the old tan Chevy convertible! Go in comfort my friend.
