Dear family, I am so very sorry for your loss. You all have my deepest sympathy. She was always so very sweet to my Mother and remembered her on so many special occasions. You don't know how much I appreciated it and how she touched my heart. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, Bless you. Jill (Candler) Payer

Janet always made you feel welcome and loved to feed you. She always had a ready smile and a gentle laugh. Had a few family gatherings where we were able to reconnect. We can be assured that she "is in a better place" and is visiting with other family members who have gone to heaven ahead of her. Our reunion will be a happy gathering when our time to join her comes. God blessings on the family as they go through the loss of a loved one. Mark & Bonnie Kerns, Maine
