My favorite memories of my sweet Aunt Janet (or Aunt JJ as my husband dubbed her) were the stories about her and her beloved husband, Ray. Her eyes would light up and she would smile from ear to ear when she spoke of him. Their love for each other was inspirational and heart-warming. Her treasures in life were her family: her husband Ray, her boys, her daughters-in-law, her grandchildren, great grandchildren, her best friend and sister, Jacqueline Lee, her sister Alice and her expansive extended family. Friends became family - for life. Pictures, in her home, were displayed everywhere and she had a story behind each picture.
Bryan and I loved spending time with Aunt Janet, going to church with her and loved taking her to her favorite Chinese restaurant. She was a wonderful seamstress and always put others before herself. We loved her dearly and she will truly be missed.

When I married David, Mom welcomed me with open arms. She loved me, my children and my grandchildren as if we were her own. We will miss this special lady but know that she is very happy to be with the Lord, Dad and her sisters
