VIXEN bassist Share (Pederson) Ross posted the following message and her website:

"Smiling and Crying

Todayís a weird day.

Itís the first day of my course Make Epic Shit Happen Ė MESH and that makes me really happy.

Itís also the day we announced that weíre going out as VIXEN in honor of our dear friend, the guitarist and founder of VIXEN, Jan.

I just hung up the phone with Janet Gardner, the singer for VIXEN and she said exactly what was in my heart.

'Ya know. I just canít believe weíre never gonna see Jan again. Like never.'

Of course, we all know what death means. But having been in a band togetherÖ and constantly seeing photos of the band online.. it just becomes surreal.

I woke up this morning deep in a dream that Iíve had several times since she diedÖ where we were playing together again.

Having worked out ALL the details of our long awaited reunion only to be sidelined with the dreaded CÖ. itís all weird.

In search of gratitudeÖ Iím gonna say thisÖ

Iím smiling and crying.

Smiling because I know in my heartÖ that this is the right thing to do.

Crying because I miss Jan and will miss being on stage with her.

Gratitude

Grateful for the fans who have graciously opened their arms and accepted our announcement with the energy it was intended. To HONOR her. To carry on a legacy that we worked our asses off to establish. To continue to feel close to her as much as we can and to play those songs that we played over a thousand times (probably 2000?) on stages all over the world.

Nobody but us four knows what we went through on those endless tours. Iím not saying it was brutal.. hardly! It was WONDERFUL!

But there was a lot of ups and downs and I think itís safe to sayÖ in many ways, Janet, Jan, Roxy and I grew up together as only a band can do when youíre in the spotlight and dealing with bizarre situations together.

So Iím writing this to get it out.
To share it.
To give this intensity a place to e x p a n d.
To honor the love, the talent, the beauty and the soul of someone I miss every single day.

I havenít been able to write anything about her up until now. Itís just been too painful.

But now Ö with the announcement of us being VIXEN again Ö it feels like she is with me in spirit. With us.

And that is why Iím smiling and crying.

Make Epic Shit Happen! Let's MESH!"
