Uncle Forest and Family...we are so sorry for your loss. Aunt Janet was a great person with a wonderful sense of humor. She loved having a good time and made everyone feel comfortable. I remember the early mornings when I would stop by after working the late shift and having a couple of Kaluha & Creams with her. Our visits were filled with good conversations and lots of laughter. Both Linda and I were lucky enough to talk to her just a few weeks ago. She'll be missed by everyone who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Bruce ("Kiddo") and Linda.

How does one begin... You were not only my Mom but my friend. You gave me strenght when I was weak, dried my tears when I was sad. You taught me how to love unconditionally and to forgive when it seemed impossible. My heart is sad, yet I find strenght and comfort knowing you are now safe and "well" again. No one can take from us, the laughter and memories we shared together as a family. I've reflected on those alot these last few days! You were always my biggest fan and strongest supporter...even when I was wrong. You let me fall, to help me back up. You were my parner in crime, and the sunshine in my day... But, first and formost, you were my Mom! I Love You!
