Godspeed, Jan Petersen

May 14, 2013


We were saddened to hear about the passing of Jan Petersen. She was the heart and soul to Barry Petersen, author of JAN’S STORY. I remember editing this powerful book with Barry. It was grueling, and I constantly felt as though I was ripping a fresh scab off of Barry’s heart with ever editing go-around. But the result is an extremely intimate look at Early Onset Alzheimer’s, and how this cruel disease is unlike any other because it leaves the body, but takes the mind. As Barry says, suddenly the idea of “forever” has an expiration date.
