I want to offer my deepest condolences to Janet's family. Janet will truly be missed. I was one of her bosses at Northside Middle School. She was an awesome, dynamic lady! Loved her spirit! She told it as it was regardless of who you were. Ha! I dearly loved her and she will always have a special place in my heart. Please know your family is in my prayers during your time of grief.
Much Love and Sympathy,
Sharon Marshall
