"I'm going for a walk" she said as often as she could to see what's going on in the neighborhood and who is out and about. Her Kindness and concern for those that she met lifted their spirits. And so now GOD in His sovereign kindness and concern has "lifted" her spirit to His "neighborhood" to walk about. Thoughts and prayers

We are so sad to hear of Janet´s passing. She was one of the sweetest persons we´ve ever known. She and Homer would stop and chat with us while on their walks around the neighborhood. She would always invite us to come see them and when we did, she always made us feel welcome. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out. Prayers of comfort for her children and grandchildren during this sad time.

Our family loved Aunt Janeth so much. The last time I was able to see her was Feb 29, 2020. She invited me to lunch. We will miss her greatly
