  1. Janet was one of the dearest, caring persons I had the privilege to call a friend for nearly 40 years. I will miss her and carry her memory with me.
    Today I spoke to one of her sons; I will be working with him to share more information about a memorial that will take place Memorial Day weekend in Florida.

    Love to all.
