To the Mohr family,

Please accept my sincere and deepest sympathies on the passing of Janis. In addition to being my half-sister and one of my father's daughters, Janis was a close and valuable friend and resource when I was a caregiver for my mother during my mom's battle with Alzheimers. She was one of the very few people I confided in for wise and sagacious advice during this difficult period.

I remember fondly the last time my mother and I saw Janis. It was shortly before Thanksgiving in 2007. Janis was living in a beautiful and bucolic subdivision outside of Quincy. Her house was on a small pond with ducks, squirrels, and she had a beloved cat. Janis appeared to be healthy and enjoying her life. I know it meant a great deal to my mother to be able to talk and visit with Janis. Several days after this, I had to place my mom in a nursing home for the last several months of her life.

When I was young, I remember Zeke and Janis living in a small house off Wabash Avenue near West Grand Elementary School in Springfield. They had an old jukebox in their basement which my brothers and I loved to play songs on and wished we had one of our own.

I remember seeing photos of Janis when she was younger. Not only was she a beautiful woman, she was very athletic and enjoyed water skiing around the Mississippi and other lakes when she and Zeke lived in Payson Heights outside of Quincy. I was always proud of both her and her sister Doris' accomplishments.

Janis believed in God and truly loved her family above all else. Becky, Gary and Suzanne are indeed fortunate to have had such a loving mother as Janis. And I am certain that if David were present with us today he would also say the same of his mother.

Janis was a loving and faithful daughter. She always remembered my dad on Father's Day and his birthday. He also loved and cherished her as only a father can.

To Becky, Gary, and Suzanne, I am sure this is a difficult time for you. Be of good courage and stay strong. Have faith and the satisfaction that your mother believed in the Lord and she will be in a much better place. Remember the good times you had together.

May the Lord bless you all for now and forever. Rest in Peace Janis.
