  1. We were extremely blessed to be able to share our lives with our cousin Janet. Such a sweet,kind & loving soul. She was such an unselfish person always willing to help those in need. We had lots of fun times together & shared in life’s sorrows with her as well. We pray that Gary will be comforted as only God can do in this time of sorrow. We all loved Janet very much.
