My favorite memory was surprising Janie last year on Mother's Day! Lisa, Cindy and I showed up to visit! Janie was so happy to see the three of us together! It was a great moment in time! I hadn't seen them for many years. It seemed as if no time had passed. Janie exclaimed, "Karen, Karen Walters!" Janie was my Step Mother and always excepted me as one of her own! R. I.P. JANIE LEFFINGWELL! 💔💕
