Aunt Janet You will be missed by every single person that had the blessing to have met and got to know you !! You were the first person (outside of family) that my momma would let me go spend the night with as a kid. My friendship with Debbie in the 7th grade changed all our lives. Your friendship with my mom and her setting you and uncle Kelly up on a date created so so many wonderful memories for us all. I love you and I cherish every single memory that I have with you. You missed uncle Kelly so much and now you are together again and that makes us all smile so big. Give him a great big hug from me and especially my momma. Until we meet again.My condolences and prayers to Rhonda, Floyd, Debbie and the rest of the family. I love you all â¤

Janet,Your laugh, your smile and kindness will be missed. I have so many memories of you throughout my childhood, holding my babies and having your children be a part of my family's life. The most recent memory of you was traveling across country in your car with Debbie. We saw some beautify scenery, hit some casino's (once at midnight and Debbie only gave us about a whole hour to gamble), we traveled through ice and snow and made it to California in record time. All the way there you talked about Kelly and how much you love him. I know half your heart went to heaven the day he passed, and now your heart is whole again, you both are in heaven enjoying each other and the love you share. I know you are both looking over your family and friends and will wait on the other side of the rainbow until we meet again. Please tell everyone in heaven we miss them!! I know you are happy and have eternal peace, until next time. love you!! Mary Lou
