I’ve been missing seeing Janet out now and then ever since she moved off of my mail route. It was always nice to see her and her furry companion . Such a pleasant person, RIP Janet. My thoughts are with her loved ones, I will always remember her fondly. Your former mail carrier, Sandy

We really didn't get to know each other until I moved back to Iowa after 52 years in California. We spent many fun times until I moved to Colorado Springs in 2011. I was welcomed into the McCoy clan for breakfast in Boone, the monthly ISU retirees lunches, concerts, basketball games, the state fair. I've missed her terribly and was planning to come home in Apr. I am devastated that I didn't get back in time.

On Monday the 5th of August I spent time with my sister, Janet at the nursing home along with Paula, Katie, Joshua and his family. It was hard for me to see Janet (my oldest sister) nearing the end of her life. Telling her that there were family members waiting at the gate of heaven to see her. That Jesus, Mom, Dad, our brothers Bob, Steve along with babies that
Went to heaven before we got to hold them [That they will know who you are, and you will know them] . When my time comes, I’ll see you there. Love you to the moon and back!
