Brenda - I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much you loved your mom. I am keeping all of your family in my prayers during this difficult time. God promises us that if our body on earth is broken by the ravages of age or disease, that will not be the case in heaven. There is in pain or suffering in heaven. Your mom is in a beautiful place and is at peace. Hugs my friend.

Brenda, Jodi, Debbie and Steve,
I was deeply sadden to hear about Janet's passing. In the short time we had together she taught me alot. She was a true lady thru and thru. She taught me about birds and her deep love for them. She was so special to me that I am going to miss my dear friend. She was an amazing lady and I have been so very blessed to that you shared her with me. She will forever live in all the hearts she left behind including mine. My love, thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I will miss my friend. Rest in Peace Janet. I am sure Bill was there to greet you❤
