Dear Family,
It’s been years since I saw Janie. She was one of my older cousins. I always thought she was pretty and had a wonderful smile. Please accept my family’s condolences on your loss. May the Lord comfort you as you pass through this season. May God bless you.
Sincerely. Irma Vara Ferguson

For everyone mourning over the loss of our wonderful Janie Sanchez, I’m sorry. I’m praying for everyone’s strength, tonight, tomorrow, and the next day. We know she’s dancing with her loved ones watching over us all. She loved everyone around her. She also had the biggest heart I could ever know. I will miss her so deeply as everyone will, but she wants us to be happy that she’s no longer in pain. Let us celebrate the wonderful life of our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Love you all.
