"While I am sadden to learn that you are mourning the loss of your beloved Janet, it saddens King Jesus and his Heavenly Father Jehovah even more. (Psalm 83:18) As time passes, may comfort from many shared family memories bring greater consolation to all. The fact that you have memories, certainly shows that Almighty God Jehovah has memories of Janet, whose life he longs to restore with perfect health, to enjoy "everlasting life" on a global Paradise Earth. Freedom of tears of sorrow, pain, suffering, danger and death are guaranteed by King Jesus. (John 3:16, John 5:28-29, Revelation 21:3-4 and Isaiah 65:17-25) You are warmly invited to visit this free website of comfort, JW.ORG to enjoy these Bible promises and view the consoling video, "IS THERE HOPE FOR THE DEAD?"

I have so many wonderful memories of Janet She was a very dedicated, hard working, caring lady.I feel very fortunate and proud that i knew her . For years she spent many many hours as President of the Women of St. Anthony or she would be up in the wee hours of the morning buying donuts so we at St Anthony could have coffee & donuts after Mass.And she was always serving us.When the Chapel was opened all night you could find Janet there . And she was so good helping with the parking lot ministry. And she was so talented - she arranged the most beautiful flowers .i moved from Florence five years ago but i always missed Janet. We had many moments full of laughter She was a great lady.. I am so sorry these last years have been so hard and painful for her.I send my deepest sympathy to her family and friends. She will be missed. Mary Bruce Ricks

Janet was my older sister. She used to tell everyone I was as her birthday gift. Truthfully as much as I told her I wish she wouldn’t tell people that I was secretly proud of that. Janet was truly a good person and will missed by many. Rest In Peace Janet.
