It was with great sadness that I heard of the passing of Janet. She hired me as a teenager along with my best friend and was always there during our dirty, muddled years of growing up with a kind word and warm smile. In the toughest times, you never saw her lose composure and I can't remember her ever raising her voice---though working with some crazy teenagers gave her every reason to!

To the family I know this is a loss you never get over. However, with time, it will get easier. Let the healing begin God speed and please know Janet and your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Peace and God Bless.
