Janet Stafford is my first cousin. Her mother and my daddy were brother and sister. After my mother, Margaret Jo Selman, passed away. Janet would come and visit with my daddy and my twin sister. They enjoyed her visits.She was a comfort to them. She is a beautiful person. I wish there were more people like her. She loved her God, her family, and her friends. She will be deeply missed. She is with Jesus and His Holy angels. Love you so much, Beth Selman Crout
