The world has lost one of the most fragrant, sweetest flowers when Jan K. Acard left us. The sweetness and abiding love she had for all and everyone, especially her family. She gave freely of herself, without asking anything in return. All who knew her or met her, were welcomed with the most sincere smile of true love and feeling. The joy she gave, especially to her family will be irreplaceable and her sweet memory will always remain with those of us who loved her and will always love her.

There will be no public services.
