Janet, you are my friend that’s is like a sister . I don’t know what to say but I’m still in disbelief .I feel a part of me is gone. You have always been a part of the family. We pretty much lived together growing up and have shared so many memories ...great memories of the life we shared . We’d had things in common over this lifetime..both had dads named Bob , moms named Dot, lived across the street starting at 18 months on...we had two daughters, both have new great , shaking hands ( like both moms),and so much more . They are happy memories, you’ll always be a part of me and I will miss you and love you ...always! We will meet again one day..but I still can’t play golf. You made so many lives better by sharing yourself with until we meet again . Love , Pat

Dear Mrs. Janet Crain

Words could not express what a kind and generous person you are. I met you while working at the club many years ago and you were always so giving to my family. Some of my fondest memories were Halloween and Christmas eve sitting and chatting about kids and life. You always had such a motherly tone with me and it was very comforting. I am honored to say you were a friend. I know you're in a better place and I pray one day I will be able to see you again in the upper room. Until then rest well my friend
Love Always

Dear Janet, it is still so hard to believe that you’ve left this earth but I know you’re in a better, more wonderful place. I will always remember you as a “no nonsense“ ex cop, straight forward but MOST kind and giving. You opened your home to my family when our house was overfilled with relatives on holiday. You shared grand baby stuff with me when I became a grandma . You were most proud to become a GREAT GRANDMA, a very young and pretty one at that. I enjoyed playing lots of golf with you and was so proud of how well we did together last month in the Member/Member (hoping your back was not too sore after carrying me those two days with a putter that was on fire). It made us all smile to see how happy you and Pete were together these last few years. You will be missed by many. It will be hard to pass by number 5 without thinking of you. My prayer for your loved ones is God’s peace and comfort. Until we see you again💗

Love, Monty and Angie

Although I only knew you for 3 years, those years will be remembered by me as some of the best years of my life. I hope I brought you as much joy and happiness as you gave me. The memories are immense. Going to Mexico. The many many times we played golf together and your positive support for me while we played. Going to Myrtle Beach to play in the WorldAm. The laughs and good times we had together were endless. Such as trying to encourage each other to eat properly during the week then sneaking out to Dairy Queen on Saturday nights for a blizzard.
I will never forget how proud you were that you were a Great Grandmother. Anytime there was an opportunity you would brag about being a Great Grandmother and have a giant beaming smile while telling someone.
Your love and kindness was incredible. Especially towards me. I am positive you are in a better place now as you are with our Lord and Savior. I have no doubt you were admitted into Heaven without a question asked. I will remember you always and Love you FOREVER. You were the PERFECT Partner, Best Friend and Lover. I will miss you forever. Until we meet again, Love Always.
