You were better than any Mother to me dear Janet and you know how much I love you ! You taught me so much in life and how to always succeed no matter how tough the situation is. To all the fun times we had together I cherish and will always know how blessed I am to have known you and all your wonderful family!!!

My cousin Janet (aka "Turkey") will be missed. My fondest memory of Janet was the time she gave me a blue and white panda bear stuffed animal. I was 5 years old. She was at the fair with friends when she came home and threw the bear at me and said "here you go Chicken"! I did not know what to say so I said "thanks Turkey!" From then on she was Turkey and I was Chicken. I will miss you so much.

Jan was a beautiful, intelligent, generous, and loving woman who will always be remembered by the many whose lives she touched. She had the best sense of humor and a very practical view of the world. Her warmth and kind spirit guided my family and me through a very difficult time and she'll never be forgotten. My heart breaks for all of you with this sad loss and your tragic loss of Levi, as well.

There has never been a more loving and generous woman. She was always available and willing to lend a hand whenever I needed help with something. I am sure she will be missed by many.
