I met Janet in the late 60’s early 70’s. She was my “That Girl”, independent, smart, beautiful and happy. She made me want to be a better person. She was a Classic. I love you and will dearly miss you.

My Cousin Janet was probably one of the most kind people I have ever met. I don’t think I ever heard her say a mean word. Mom & Dad always said she was the “sweetest girl”. ❤️
Janet played the organ at church when I was growing up. I don’t know if she knew what a big influence she was to me. I think she played a major part in my love of the piano. One year at Christmas time when I was really young, maybe 8-9, she played a piece that was so beautiful, I can still hear it even now. I leaned over to my Mom & told her “I’m going to play that one day” . I was in my 2nd year of piano lessons, and far from being able to play a piece like that.
After church I went up to Janet & told her how much I enjoyed it. You have to know when I was young, I was VERY shy, (not anymore!), so this took a lot for me to tell her this.
She leaned over, hugged me & immediately reached to her sheet music and gave it to me. She told me “I want you to learn this one day and think of me when you play it”.
I went on to take lessons for 11 years, and taught for 3. I also learned that piece and played it for recital one year, thinking of her the entire time.
Since that time, when I hear “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” I remember that sweet smile telling me to think of her.
The World has a lost a sweet gentle soul, but the Heavens have gained an Angel. ❤️
She will be missed. Love to you all.

For as long as I can remember, my big sister Janet has been my hero and one of the coolest people I know. She was 7 years older than me, but when she was around 19 or 20, she let Marilyn (our middle sister) and me hang out with her. I was only 13 or so at the time so felt so grown up! Sometimes we'd go to the Mansfield Drive-In in Fort Worth to watch movies, other times just go get a Coke at Dairy Queen or Jack-in-the-Box and drive all around Fort Worth - she seemed to like the Camp Bowie Blvd. area as I recall. And if a good song came on the radio, of course, we'd have to roll down the windows and turn up the radio and sing along - even when it was 30 degrees outside! We'd also look for roads that had hills so we could go fast and "lose our stomachs" (that thrill feeling in your belly like when you go on a roller coaster). Although the miles kept us from seeing each other very often the past few years, Janet and I were always close and she was always looking out for her "baby sister" as she called me. I miss you so much, big sister!
