Your Mother Janet will always hold a special place in my heart and my moms more . Her love of her family and her laugh I will always cherish . My favorite memory was when she came to visit us one year in Dunlap, TN and we took to her to a historical place on the way back to Dunlap my twins at the time who were infants went to screaming for their bottles she feed one out of the car seat and said she would pay for the ticket if we got pulled over or we could hand them out the window to a policeman if he showed up .
