Words cannot adequately express the sorrow I experience in learning of Janet's passing. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Bill, Russ, all those who love Janet and especially her daughters, Emily and Sarah as I know how very proud she was of her girls. They were her life.

All our love to Sarah, Emily and Russ, along with the entire family. Janet was a beautiful person and so kind to our family. Janet touched so many lives loving families and people that needed a healing touch. Her heartfelt bedside manner and gift for healing was felt by many. Without a doubt, she heard the words, "Janet! Well Done, my good and faithful servant," the moment she touched Heaven's Gate. We send our love and deepest sympathy.
