    Going to miss them very much. The impact of Odyssey on my family’s lives are there for the duration of our lifetime.

    Welcome to the blog Agman!

    Hi guys


  • SILLY4SOCCER on August 31st, 2016 - 12:43pm

     

    Jack and Joanne were my favorite characters, I sure am going to miss them. But at least they still have other cool characters.


  • Lissa on August 31st, 2016 - 12:53pm

     

    Wow, that was very touching… I actually teared up at the end there. Thank you Janet and Alan for having been such a big part of my life.


  • MOCHA13 on August 31st, 2016 - 1:08pm

     

    i,m going to have a tear stained face for days


  • emoji4me on August 31st, 2016 - 2:14pm

     

    I am about to listen to the program, but I will miss them:-)
    🙁


  • s m i l e on August 31st, 2016 - 2:22pm

     

    Wow, This was one of the best podcasts you all have done. It’s extremely sad that they are not around anymore. Alan was a favorite of mine. Janet was very classy.
    It feels like a golden age is slowly coming to a close. New voices will come and go but the people of the early years of AIO will forever be remembered as being the best.


  • Brooke on August 31st, 2016 - 4:00pm

     

    Sally and Lissa are you new or just not around very often?


  • Elizabeth on August 31st, 2016 - 4:17pm

     

    Going to miss these two. I loved listening to them and all the characters on this show. Being a mother of 2, I still listen to AIO even when the kids are not around and any episodes with Jack & Joanne were of my favorites


  • Becky on August 31st, 2016 - 4:29pm

     

    I am from Honduras, central america! I love adventures in Odyssey and i still listen to them from time to time, especially on road trips! God has used AO to shape my life and my relatiioship with Jesus! So sad to hear about their passing but they were amazing to listen to!


  • Becky on August 31st, 2016 - 4:37pm

     

    So sad to hear of this, but i will listen to them over and over!!!!


  • Val on August 31st, 2016 - 5:52pm

     

    Oh my word! That makes me want to cry!! ?


  • sue on August 31st, 2016 - 6:06pm

     

    as my children got older, it was Alan that played Jack that was able to speak to my older children’s hearts of being unequally yoked.
    Janet and Alan, as Jack and Joann, showed what a good marriage should look like for our older,now grown children, and I always appreciated that, since they lived with not so good examples.


  • JD Sutter on August 31st, 2016 - 6:29pm

     

    Splendid job on this episode! Absolutely beautiful. It was just perfect; I don’t think it could have been done any better.

    Excuse me while I go get a Kleenex…


  • Elizabeth on August 31st, 2016 - 7:04pm

     

    Love both of these characters. Will miss them Dearly.

  • Rosalind on September 1st, 2016 - 6:02am

     

    That’s so depressing! They were so kind and awesome, both as actors and as odyssey characters. Miss you guys!


  • Jenny on September 1st, 2016 - 6:27am

     

    I’m going to miss them so much…I could just listen to this podcast over and over. It made me smile and cry at the same time.
    I agree, SMILE – I think this is the best tribute podcast they have done. This one and the one for Walker Edmonston.
    My favorite part was the last few minutes when they talked about Jack & Joanne getting married. And the section about “A Question About Tasha” and Jack talking about his former wife. Such amazing actors and people!


  • Jenny on September 1st, 2016 - 6:32am

     

    Blog Mods:
    Is it possible for me to download this podcast, like all the other podcasts? I don’t see the option for downloading it…
    Thanks!


  • Joe on September 1st, 2016 - 6:33am

     

    Beautiful job. I took Alan’s passing hard. Been a fan since a young boy watching Ducktales, Time Machine and Mister Ed. It was on Adventures in Odyssey that I saw the depth of his talent. Jack Allen will always be my favorite character. I had the privilege of interviewing Alan. It remains a highlight in my radio career. Touched me to hear him say on your podcast that Odyssey was his favorite. He told me that of all the things he’d done, his work with Focus was the thing he was most proud of 🙂


  • emoji4me on September 1st, 2016 - 6:55am

     

    I agree SMILE!:-)


  • Bonnie on September 1st, 2016 - 7:22am

     

    That was one of the best podcasts you have ever done. Thank you so much for the behind the scenes look at these amazing actors. I grew up on AIO and I miss the golden years with Bernard, Tom, Jack, and JoAnne. They were some very talented actors.
    I am looking forward though to the new direction and characters that will come into AIO as it grows and changes. Thank you for what you do!


  • Christy on September 1st, 2016 - 8:17am

     

    You two will be sorely missed. 🙁 We will have a big reunion later!

  • NJ on September 1st, 2016 - 8:58am

     

    This podcast is absolutely beautiful! Had me in tears. Thank you, Odyssey team, for producing this touching tribute to two of my very favorite actors on AIO.


  • kELLI on September 1st, 2016 - 9:42am

     

    What a beautiful homage/tribute to some amazing actors. Very touching. And, it was fun to hear from the Odyssey staff over the years.

  • SILLY4SOCCER on September 1st, 2016 - 12:58pm

     

    I was just listening to it… I can get sad really easily, but, that just hit it. Does anything we should have a “Thank you Janet Waldo and Alan Young” Day? Idk I just get sad when stuff like this happens… *Cries* I’m going to be crying for the rest of my life… Thank you for this podcast.

  • Jessica on September 1st, 2016 - 9:39pm

     

    Wow, the impact that Alan and Janet through AIO have had on our family, and many other families is profound. Moreover, the impact they’ve had for the Kingdom of God is greater. Although it feels like we are saying good-bye to family, it is only good bye for a little while, because we’ll see them again in heaven one day.


  • Emilyn on September 2nd, 2016 - 5:45am

  • Rose on September 2nd, 2016 - 9:22am

     

    Hi everyone. I haven’t had a computer to right on sense we have been at the hospital two days in a row. Memere’s arteries were the most clogged that the surgeon had ever seen. She went in at 7:30 and at 9:30 her heart stopped. The surgeon literally manually squished her heart for 30 minuets!! After the surgery was finished they told us they didn’t know if she would wake up. She is miraculously slowly waking up!!! Give all the power to God!! She is still in the ICU and we don’t know …


  • Rose on September 2nd, 2016 - 9:23am

     

    when she will be coming out. things will either get better really slowly or get worse really fast. So continued prayers are welcome. Things to pray for are- that her blood pressure will stay where it is supposed to be, that she will not have any brain damage due to loss of oxygen, that she will have a strong will to live, and that all of her family will have courage and strength. Thank you so much for your prayers. Please continue praying.


  • Rose on September 2nd, 2016 - 9:26am

     

    I just reposted the update from the other podcast onto this podcast so that nobody misses it. Thanks for your continued prayers.

    Love,
    ROSE 🙂

    Thank you for this podcast — what a lovely glimpse into the joy that Alan and Janet shared in performing in the Adventures in Odyssey series. I’m Janet’s daughter, and I know how much she loved the work, and also the beautiful friendships with all the good people at Focus on the Family.

  • Rose on September 3rd, 2016 - 5:38am

     

    UPDATE: Memere is still very slowly getting better. Her blood pressure is reasonably stable. This morning the nurses sat her up in a chair! It was very tiring and painful for her but it is important for her to move so she does not get pneumonia. Her breathing tube was taken out yesterday which was the next big step. All of this is a miracle even the doctors and nurses didn’t think she would make it. Again she is still not out of the woods so please continue your prayers. THANK YOU!!

    Will miss Jack and Joanne terribly! And to the rest of the old odyssesy crowd, puhleeese stay! I don’t think your fans can handle anymore of this!


  • NRP on September 8th, 2016 - 7:30pm

     

    That was so sad! And yet so fun at the same time! I didn’t know about all that stuff and all that they did, and for a minute there, I thought they were still alive ?. Like Katie said Hal was irreplaceable, so are Allen and Janet. Can’t wait to see them again on the other side!


  • Brooke on September 9th, 2016 - 7:35am

     

    Mocha13, I prayed for you when I saw the post…. How did it go?


  • Brooke on September 9th, 2016 - 7:43am

     

    Anonymous, Hi, could all you who go by “anonymous” makea username? It doesn’t have to be your real name just make something up, Like CRAZY4AIO or idk, anything! It just can get a little confusing! 😀


  • Brooke on September 9th, 2016 - 7:43am

     

    Hey John!


  • Brooke on September 9th, 2016 - 7:44am

     

    Katie, that is a great idea!


  • Sean on September 9th, 2016 - 10:24am

     

    I loved Jack and Jo-ann… we will miss them always, but know they are in a better place.


  • Sean on September 9th, 2016 - 10:25am

     

    I have been working full time at my job, then I went back to part time, and now have 11th grade schoolwork… so, this is probably goodbye. 😥
    You guys were all- and still are- AWESOME! gonna miss you all, fellow posters! 🙂
    Wow..I have been here- on and off- for almost 3 1/2 YEARS!!

    Thank you, Blog Mods, Aio staff, and everyone!

    God bless!

    BROOKE: Yes I did!


  • Abby on September 9th, 2016 - 5:00pm

     

    They defiantly lived a life in fulfillment to christ. They were my favorite couple and they both played their lines so well that I when I pictured Jack in my mind Joan was always there too, and vice versa. So sad there’re gone,but they have gone to a better place.


  • Abigail on September 9th, 2016 - 5:46pm

     

    Wow! That was so powerful! I’m about to cry! I’ll definitely miss Jack and Joan.


  • Gj on September 10th, 2016 - 8:57am

  • SILLY4SOCCER on September 12th, 2016 - 2:58pm

     

    I just LOVE the ending when Alan Young says “It’s been nice knowing you” It just… idk how to say it. SO SAD


  • cowgirl14 on September 12th, 2016 - 4:56pm

I’ll be waiting! 🙂 and for any girl not just teens, you could go to the Missouri girl chat place, just type “Missouri” for 5-10 year olds, type “girl” or for tweens (10-12) type “awe” I hope you all have fun!
