for Tom Jans
by Raymund Jans
Young Tom, with parents Art and Jean,
& grandparents Rose and Gustave Jans
Leavitt Meadows in the Sierra
Mountains getting ready to go back about 4-5 hours into the
mountains for some camping and fishing. The date on the back
of the photo is August, 1966. Art had this photograph on his wall for
many years, so it is very faded. The mountains in the
background are where Tom's ashes are laid to
Tom and his father camping in the Sierras, probably in late 70's.
Jean Jans passed away in 2007. Later that year a close family
friend carried the ashes of both Art and Jean to the Sierra near Tom's
final resting place.
