My dear Aunt Janie, I am so sorry that I can not attend your celebration of life. You have been a second mother to me and been by my side when I needed you the most. You will forever be in my heart. I love the times we have shared on trips together. I will always remember our trip to Ocala and being stopped for speeding. I guess the officer took pity on us seniors and just gave me a warning.

My cousins, your mom is at home with the Lord and her loved ones who have gone before. No more pain. Always remember the good days you had with her and how happy she is now. She will be missed but not forgotten.
