We will always remember Janis for her love, kindness and hospitality. No one could ask for a better neighbor, she was a such a blessing to us. I know I will see her again and rest in the fact that she is no longer in pain and now at rest. We will see you again Janis! Our thoughts and prayers are with Bill and the family, may God's love heal your sorrow. Love your neighbors Shawn & Karen McKinnon”

Bill & Family, We are with you all in Spirit as you celebrate the life of Janis. We were all so blessed to have known her extraordinary existence on this Earth and await the Sweet Day when we will be reunited again in the Kingdom of God. We pray that the sweet memories you have will serve to comfort you and bring you peace in this time of mourning. Our depth of grief is often measured by the magnitude of love and this tremendous loss of our Sweet Cousin and Niece leads us to realize that her departure leaves a hole in our hearts. Please know that we love you and are keeping you lifted up in prayer. With Love, Uncle Tommy, Aunt Dottie, Lynn Ann and Lanessa

My Dearly Loved niece Janis... I am so sad that you had to leave us so soon. You and Bill have always had an enduring love for each other and enduring friendship with Uncle Ray and I. You are so dear to me and I have watched you grow into a beautiful woman, wife and mother. Uncle Ray and I spent many wonderful vacations with you, Rosemarie and your Mom & Dad. They were such happy times. Now it is time to say goodbye until we meet again my beautiful niece, I will always love you.

Bill, My heart goes out to you for your heartbreaking loss. Janis was such a wonderful person. We never know God’s plans for us. I hope you can find solace in the memories you shared over your lifetime with Janis. I remember all our fun visits to Pennsylvania to visit Aunt Em and Uncle Frank’s crew. We always had a huge family meal with all of you, and usually, at some point, Janis played the piano for us! Great memories! Love always Debbie

We are very saddened to hear of the passing of our very good friend Janis. She and Bill were always so happy giving the items from their garden to everyone and sharing a kind word with their neighbors. They always shared their love of our Savior with all of us. We will miss Janis dearly as we continue to keep her in our prayers. She now shares in the Divinity as she takes her place at the table of the Lord. God give Janis the graces she so richly deserves. May Bill and the entire family be given strength during this time of great sorrow. We want you to know that Janis enriched our lives and that she was a very special person who touched us lovingly. God bless, Stan & Marie
