Message from Rookie's Bar & Grill;

"We are so sorry to hear of her passing. Janet was a very sweet lady who loved her Jets!! She was there every Sunday to cheer them on and have a glass of Chardonnay and boneless wings.
This football season won’t be the same without her."

Yesterday you were laid to rest. Janet... I don’t even know where to start. You were more like me a sister to me than a cousin and friend. I will miss your messages and calls keeping me updated on who is down visiting, invites to meet y’all for dinner, and where the holiday gatherings will be. I will miss your caring and loving ways. I will miss YOU. Love you, Barbara

Janet, we didn’t see you often but we have the best memories of the times we spent together. I think we go back about 39 years! You were our friend, tenant, and Diva to our Brian when he came to town.

I still have a hard time believing you are gone. It all came about so fast. You will be so greatly missed, as will big Ed. Your family has been through some tough days. I pray the memories you shared with everyone will live forever. You were a beautiful soul. Miss you already.

Wish we were in Florida today to celebrate your life. The McCormick’s will be there in spirit.
