Janet was such a remarkable person. I met her through work and we both hit it off great. She was alot of fun to be around and always happy. She moved from Waynesboro. Va to Delaware and we still got to see each other. When she moved to Louisiana we would keep in touch on facebook and had planned on us getting together in VA. I loved her and the family just like they was my own. She will be greatly missed by all. She will be watching down on us with her beautiful smile and her hugs.

Even though she had left Del. We still remained friends. How could ever or want to forget my dear friend. My heart was broke and I moped around for a while when the family left, I always knew she a phone call away, or I'd catch up with her on Facebook. So when I got a call from melissa(one of my girls) i was devastated, a broken soul,still am! The family lived diagonally from us and we spent so much time together, i called her 3 daughters my baby girls, my heart is broken for them and Danny. We laughed together and cried some too. There are so many memories. I always looked forward to seeing her smile, feeling her warm embrace, and hearing her voice the next time she came back home. I will always remember her she was like another sister, and I loved her. She will always be missed. When does the hurt stop. I love the girls and hold them in my heart always no matter how far away they are.

My baby sister...we were best friends when we were little. I helped mom take care of you. I taught you how to crawl and then walk. It took forever for you to learn to talk cause I would just talk for you. As we grew up we lived our lives differently but still loved each other. Then we got married and had kids and loved each of those too. You were the "fun aunt" and my kids adored being with you. They miss you so much it's hard to watch. Paul is trying his best to stay strong for us. I will miss your crazy laugh and your words of encouragement and wisdom. You were so wise way beyond your eyes. You got that from dad. I know he was there to hug you along with Aunt Edna and all our other family members. Paul and i promise to take care of mom until she's ready to join you all. Watch over us all. Love you so much baby sister.

It rocked me to the core to hear you left and couldn't help but think it can not be true. Memories streaming back to the day in 2010 where we met at our local BMX track in Dothan and how natural it was for our families to click and become a 2nd family. It was a highlight to my boys and me when the weekend rolled around and it was road trip time to visit the "Woods" in Walker. The Garmin disaster to send me past y'alls house into the woods was a precursor of laughter and good times to follow on every single trip. Your family opened your house and we felt right at home. Late night chats sitting at that kitchen table and early morning coffee chats with your Mom Besse was the best therapy for my boys and me. The memories are filled with smiles and laughter and boy did we laugh till we cried. The haunted forrest visit - DJ so scared that I had to grab onto him to keep him from bolting into the woods and seeing him and Melissa take off in a sprint with DJ outrunning her was priceless. The trip to the 13th gate a year later when we piled into my Santa Fe with a few more ppl than what the car was made to hold and Shawn hanging behind Danny like a glued on shadow because he was scared but to big to admit it. BMX races, Cracker Barrel dinners and silly dance session in front of the Hotel lobby in West Monroe, Home coming dress shopping and BBQ's in the backyard, being there for Alex's big day a few years are just a few that pop right back into my head. The years flew by and we didn't talk as often anymore but always kept in touch. I will miss you Janet and know that you will keep your eye on things from up above. I wont say good bye but say so long till we meet again

I will always remember the Sunday night dinners together. One night you decided to drive all the way out to Walker to get the love of my life so we could be together and me not knowing if we we're going to pan out. You always knew that we were meant together. I remember you asking me "Why didn't you kiss the girl?!" On the way back home from dropping her off and "I said I will next time I promise." I also remember you always asking for me to rub your shoulders because you said I could get them damn knots out! I will always rember your warm hugs and love that you gave me. You were one of the most beautiful people anyone could ever meet and always brought light in to any one of my darks days. You will be missed and I love you. Rest in peace and I will always have Janet!

Love,
Your "Married Into" Son

I thought it hurt when you moved to Louisiana, but we stayed in touch. But now my friend you have gained your angel wings to fly in the heavens above. I will treasure my memories of our BMX days traveling and here in Delaware. Your love for your girls, Danny, mother, your grandchildren and animals is in all the pictures that have been shared! You were an amazing woman, I'm so glad I was able to call you my friend.

Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for your family. Growing up Janet was a staple at our house. When I married and had kids, Janet was our babysitter. She loved kids as much as she loved animals! She was so loved by our whole family. Our relationship lasted up until her departure and will endure beyond time. I will see her again one day I know. My heart aches but I know God has wrapped her in his arms until we see her again.
