Not sure what to say?

In loving memory of a wonderful person. I’ve known Janell since elementary school, and have so many incredible memories of her. I just can’t believe she is gone. Sending my deepest condolences to her husband, her daughter, and family.

Our deepest sympathies to you all. We are so sorry you have experienced such loss and hold you close in prayers now and in the days to come. May your many beautiful memories carry you through.

Janell was full of life and so fun to be around. We had so many fun memories from football games, to house parties, to NYE down in San Diego. She loved her family and you could always count on her if you needed anything. I’m still at a loss and can’t believe this happened. I’m thinking and praying for all of you during this time. I’m so sorry!
