Dear Gene O.,
My heart is heavy as I think of you and your dear family. What a lovely, sweet lady Janet was.
May it somehow help to know that your many friends care about you and are holding you in their thoughts and prayers at this time. If there is anything I can do to be helpful...now or later...just let me know. God bless you.

My life, and those of our children, are better for having had Janet in them. Her quiet demeanor, her quickness to find the humor in a situation, her love of children and kind acceptance of others are just a few of the qualities I so loved about Janet. I hope she'll save me a seat in Heaven~
With love for all of you.

Dear Gene....I haven't seen you in many, many years but was truly stunned yesterday to learn of Janet's passing. I remember what a super girl she was and the great relationship you and she had. My wife (Sandra Weaver) was very fond of Janet, too, and sends her heartfelt condolences. Our very best to you, Gene, and your family.

Although words cannot convey the depth of ones importance, I want to say that Janet was the greatest gift of a Grandmother to Candice. I am thankful to have had her in our (mine and CCs) life.
She will stay with us through memory and tradition, she was very loved and will never be forgotten.
