John and JoAnn, Words will not wipe away the tears and hugs may not ease the pain, but hold onto your memories because forever they will remain. It's been many years since I saw Janet due to distance but have thought about her many times. I have some wonderful memories and pictures of the good times we shared at GTE and numerous New Year's Eve parties and even bowling. She was always a good friend who I missed. Now JP and Janet will be together again and at peace. Thinking and praying for your family! God Bless Callene Hunter
