So sorry for your loss, try to keep your mom's memories close to your heart, she loved you dearly. I remember sitting at Lindotte
when you boy's played baseball and your Dad coached as you grew up and your mom cheered for you. With deepest sympathy
from Linda and LeRoy Spiess.

Janet, You will be truly be missed my friend, my sister. It will not be the same without you. From the bottom of my heart I appreciate everything you have done for my mother as I have told you a million times. You were a very sweet loving friend. When you would hug me, I could feel the love flowing into my body. May you RIP my friend, my sister Janet. We always called each other sisters and that's just the way it was. ❤️
