My heartfelt sympathy to the family. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God’s promise to soon wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

What I can say about you, Janet, is that you lived your life to the fullest and made me do the same. When we traveled to Maine together( many years ago) we both purchased an origional painting of a small seaside town. Getting home with it in one piece was not an easy task. Well, it made it back to WV in good shape. My cat, however; had other plans. For some reason, she shred part of it to pieces. Janet spent about six hours with glue and a toothpick and put that painting back together – piece by piece.That was over 40 years ago and I still have it hanging in my house. Determination, a strong will and stubborn. I will always hold our memories in my heart forever, dear friend. I will see you again one day.
