  1. Me sympathy and prayer go out to Janet’s family. Her grandmother Mary was and Uncle Sam is still is a dear friend of nearly 70 years. Janet and Judy honored my high school class reunion by attending in honor of their mother about thirty years ago.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve lost many whom I love, and I found much comfort in the Bible. Revelation 21:4 tells us that there will soon come a time when,”He [God] will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more!” It is so wonderful to know that grief and death will be gotten rid of! I hope this brings you some comfort during this difficult time!!

  3. So sorry to hear about Janet. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
