To Beth and all the family. My prayers are for comfort for you knowing she is in God's loving hands now. No more pain, worry, sorrow or any of the other troubles of this world. Beth, I remember your mother as a gentle, kind woman with a ready smile. After losing my mother last year, it always gives me comfort to think of her surrounded by love, as your mother is now. Remember, we will see our loved ones again in heaven. This life that we live is only a temporary one.

My Mother, Nell Herndon, loved your mother. She was so kind and loving to everyone. I know you all will have a difficult time dealing with the grief but after a while, a long while, you begin to live again. My Mother went to Heaven on May 1, 1999 and I think of things she told me all the time. My heartfelt sympathy is extended to all.

Janet was a beautiful lady. I will remember her wisdom and quiet way about her. I am thankful I met her in my life. There are words she shared with me that I will never forget, which witnessed to me, Christ living in her.
