“Today would have been Jan’s 75th Birthday, he passed away unexpectedly last week, and a piece of us died with him. We are heartbroken. The night before he left us, we shared a beautiful conversation about how blessed we are, our children all successful and happy, and that we could only brag to each other. We spoke every day. He was my family. Jan was an amazing father, grandfather, friend, and partner to his girlfriend. He loved everyone unconditionally, Motown, working out and Italian food, but most of all, he loved his family. I chose this photo not only because it was one of his favourites but because he had a youthful spirit and will be forever young. Happy Birthday my angel.”
