To my cousins ,
Your Mom was a fabulous most generous & thoughtful woman . Intelligent , hardworking & above all a strong person . I so loved and admired her strength to never give up to persevere whenever life threw difficulty after difficulty upon her . We are truly heartbroken .
Janet & I always spoke no matter where I traveled . I miss her so much & I choose to remember all the happy times when we would meet at my home or all go out for dinner . Tom & I truly love & miss her dearly. I’m sure all three of you children will cherish too all she gave of herself out of her devotion to all of you. Janet was a Mom like no other and she will always be my paradigm of Strength .
With deepest sympathy, & love

Your mother was a wonderful woman with a very big heart. She and I had such nice times and talks during these years and I admire her as a person and a boss. She will be missed but she is with the love of her life now and I am sure each of you now have a very special angel watching over you. Rest In Peace Janice. Love you.
