Janet was my aunt and has held my sons, their children, and myself so close for all of our lives. She has always done whatever she could for anyone in need or just to show her love. Janet was beautiful inside and out, and the world has a little less light without her being here. Anyone Janet touched will not forget her.
I loved Janet with all my heart.
