So sorry for your loss, Janie will be missed by so many. I know all to well, there’s really nothing I can say to help you feel better or lessen the pain. Just know that Janie was a very big blessing to me. Her caring heart and how she always had something good to say about everyone we came in contact with over the years, will always stay with me. I’m a better person for having known her. Stay strong for each other and keep the Faith knowing that one day you’ll all be together again.
It’s not goodbye, it’s till I see you again dear friend.
Love Trish 🙏🏼💜🙏🏼
