I'm sorry to hear about Janet's death and hope she didn't have to suffer much. I remember Janet and you children from the doctor's office. All of you have sweet personalities. As I write this, you are probably getting ready to go to her graveside service. May our loving Heavenly Father give each of you that wonderful peace and may you have strength, patience and love to face each tomorrow as you grieve and wisdom to deal with all the legalities.
