Jan - or Burgy-Lynn as I called her in 8th grade - was a wonderful friend.  We had many fun times together, especially in 8th grade while at Sequoyah Middle School.  I remember when she got her first contact lenses and in the  middle of class she would shout out, "I lost my eye, I lost my eye!" and I would be the one to walk her to the bathroom so we could find her "eye"!  She was so funny.  I also remember riding her horse with her all the way from where she lived (close to 131st and Elm) to my house (past 91st and Elm).  Of course, that was when 91st was a 2-lane, much less busy, street with hardly any homes between us.  I am so sorry that she is gone before I had one last chance to talk with her.  Jan was a great person.
