Janet was a very special kind of person.Her commitment to the things she was called to do was beyond the norm. She miraculously gave of herself. I am reminded of the miracle where Jesus fed the 5000 people with 5 fish and two loaves of bread and still had baskets left-over. Every student, co-worker, or colleague that crossed her path is a better person because of her. Janet Meyers truly had the gift that keeps on giving.

I became friends with Janet on the Ovarian Cancer daily strength support group site 3 years ago. We spoke a few times on the phone, as well. I loved her attitude and willingness to thrive and help others who have the disease. She was strong and a real inspiration to me, and others. I miss her. Blessings to her family.

May Christ the Lord grant her eternal peace. "Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father." (Mat 13:43)
Her warmth and kindness will certainly be missed

To Janet's family -- Thank you for sharing your Mom/Wife with me. A terrible disease brought us together -- the only good thing that comes out of this is meeting beautiful people like your Mom/Wife. She was a constant at our support meetings on Wednesday -- in fact for awhile it was just me and her on Wednesdays. We started out as strangers going through a similar journey but finished as friends. I will miss her terribly.

Always in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. What an amazing woman and amazing family!

Love and prayers, always.
