Nita and I were great friends during our work at Sabine Valley and later at Longview Wellness Center. We went to lunch together at least 2 times per week. After Longview Wellness Center we lost contact with each other. The things I will remember most is our talks about Angie and Justin then the grandkids. How she loved you all so much. When Larry passed and I saw the obit, and I think I sent a note and we re-connected through FB, exchanged a few messages. Ya'll I know there are no words that can provide the comfort you need right now but let me say this....if she was ill, she is no longer suffering and we are all going to meet again.

I am Sally Brown , I last talked to Janutta when my sister Sue passed away last year, Januatta's dad Moody was brother to my mother Ollie "Sis" . Growing up we were as close as brothers and sisters, Janutta, Sue and Patsy, who is daughter of Katherine Ward, sister to Moody and Sis, really were very close. Janutta also contacted me about family history, I was glad I'm not the only one interested LOL. I loved Januatta very much, she was so proud of ya'll, she told me about how smart , and great her children and their families are. Angie and Justin I am so sorry, and know I send my love.
