Janet loved her grandaughters' Saige and Alexa. Only last month, while already in failing health, she attended the livestock shows in both Lampasas and Gatesville on the same weekend. It was so important to her to watch Saige show her pigs and spend time with Alexa. I pray that as they get older they keep those memories close to their hearts.
