“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” -Psalm 23

Janet was one of my favorite coaches when I was a cheerleader for the Sandston Jets. She was a beautiful woman inside and out, and her smile was contagious. I was saddened to see that she had passed. Thinking of her family as I know she was so loved and will be deeply missed. May thoughts and prayers comfort you and help heal your broken hearts.
