Aunt Janette was my gentle, kind, "second mom". A loving person. A beautiful soul. She will never be forgotten. Her smile and laugh I can still here in my mind. Rest in your Father's loving arms.

Mom taught me so much. John and I were so young when we got married. She taught me how to cook John's favorite meals and sew. She was an example of a godly wife and mother.
