Jann loved bright colors, such as fuchsia, bright pink, and purple; so, if you have those colors in your wardrobe please wear them in her honor. She also loved butterflies, and often wore costume jewelry featuring butterflies. If you have anything featuring butterflies that could be used to temporarily to decorate the meeting house, please bring those too.
