Dear Kathy and family, please accept my deepest sympathy at the passing of your beloved daughter and sister Janet. I will always remember Janet as always smiling and so happy to share a few minutes conversation with an old neighbor. She was such a beautiful woman.

To Janet's family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I went to school and graduated with Janet. She was always friendly and loving toward me when we would run into one another. She always expressed to me her love for her boys and family. She was a good person. I couldn't make it to the service because of a family celebration, but my heart and prayers went out to you for your terrible loss. May God's peace comfort you all.
