Janet was a very caring and sweet lady. As a girl, while visiting with your family ( quite often), she would tell me silly stories and we’d talk and cut up. I always had a great time with you all. Chris was always so cute and also told me in great detail what he did and liked. Your mom was always a sweet person as well and your dad a jokester!
I will remember Janet as very lovable and oh so kind. Bless her heart. She will be missed.
