    She was a grand and fun lady and a consummate neighborhood mom who was always gracious with whatever group of highschoolers showed up for a pool party.

    I wish I could be there with you all, I’m so sorry to lose Auntie Jan. She always had a big smooch and a “Hi, Honey!’ for me when I saw her. I cherish the memories I have with her and all of my Summers family. I know that her and Uncle Jim are smiling down on us as we say goodbye.
