I am so sorry over the loss of Janie. She was such a beautiful soul and was always so kind to me. When I was in high school and other parents sometimes did not like their kids hanging out with me, Janie never, ever judged me. In fact, she fed me Pizza Inn on Friday nights, she took me along to Current river with Jennifer and the family, picked us up from hair metal concerts and Merton church events, and she always, always made me feel welcome and wonderful. I loved and love this family very much. I am sorry that I did not make it to visitation or to the service. I am sending love to you all. Janie touched my life in huge ways during some very difficult teenage days and I will always be thankful for the memories, love and acceptance. Thank you, Janie.
