Jan and I talked on the phone daily, solving the worlds problems, the happenings of The Young and Restless show, and just stuff. I am deeply going to miss my "sister" in law and dear friend.

My condolences to the Armstrong family. I never had the privilege of meeting Mr and Mrs Armstrong, but have the pleasure of working with their son Jim. Anyone who can raise a decent person and outstanding father, like Jim, commands my respect. May they forever rest in peace, with a lifetime of good memories left behind for the their family.
