My deepest condolences to the Ptak family, Jan spoke of you often and with love. Jan knew how to live life to the fullest and enjoyed telling us about her grandchildren. She radiated goodwill and was kind and thoughtful to others. She nurtured and cultivated all living things – it was just the way she was.
Dear Jan……. Thank you for sharing your irrepressible optimism, generous spirit and love of life with us – marathons run, relays for life and fundraisers to help others – And, you were kind enough to sew a weighted lap pad for someone in need of calming, with just the right amount of sand (because you had taken the time to try different amounts)……. but these are just a few of the wonderful things you did to inspire and help others at our OUBOCES community. You were and still are an amazing person.
I am so sad to hear of Jan's passing. What a lovely lady she was. Several months ago she updated me on her children and grandchildren when we ran into one another at JOANN Fabrics and Crafts in Middletown. She loved her family greatly. John and I would like to express our deepest sympathy to all. RIP Jan.
