My deepest sympathies to you all. I worked with Jan at Express Scripts. Jan & I started the same year in Customer Service. She was such a ray of sunshine to all who were fortunate enough to meet Jan. So positive! Such a joy!! When I worked in the office before working from home I enjoyed some breaks & lunches with Jan and she always made the day better when I had the opportunity to see things through her positive eyes. She will be missed.
