    Sending our love and deepest sympathy to Jan and her family. We've shared many wonderful memories and happy times with Gus and Jan that will forever stay with us. Who could forget Gus eating bowls of fruit in Hawaii, skiing into trees in the Poconos, cooking in the hotel room and causing the electricity to go out? Our lives have certainly been blessed by his presence, laughter, and lots of fun.

    Jan and Family, Adam and I are so sorry for your loss. Gus was a very special person and we loved him very much. Adam enjoyed his talks with Gus sitting on the front porch, and I will surely miss his laugh, it was contagious. Please don't hesitate to call us for anything, you know we're here!! We love you Jan.
