Janet was part of our lives all these years. She and her best friend Virginia were friends through elementary and High School and all their lives. Our families and children we have know forever. She loved her family above anything in her life. I loved Janet so much with her laughter, her friendliness, her thoughtfulness, emotion towards others. She always had a big hug for everyone. No one can replace her. She will be at peace in Heaven looking down on her family with love and reuniting with her love ones in Heaven.
