    RICHARD & FAMILY: SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR MOM. I HAVE FOUND MEMORIES WHEN I WAS GROWNING UP GOING TO YOUR HOUSE & VISITING WITH YOU, JANIE & TROY. SORRY I WON’T BE ABLE TO COME, BUT MINKA IS COMING. WOULD LOVE TO SEE ALL OF YOU. MAY GOD COMFORT YOU IN THIS TIME OF SORROW & KEEP EVERYONE SAFE ON THEIR TRAVELS.

    LOVE, YOUR COUSIN, DONNA

  2. Richard and Pat, we are so sorry that we will not be able to come for the graveside tomorrow, but we have obligations here tonight. I have great memories of Janie and Troy and the fun that we used to have. Janie was always the perfect lady and was always the last one ready to go. But she was well worth waiting for with every hair in place and makeup and clothing perfect. How we will miss her. I know that the last few years have really taken a toll on all of you and I wish we had been close enough to help out. Just take comfort in the fact that Janie is now in the arms of Jesus and is dancing on the streets of heaven with her new leg!

    Love to all,

    Joe, Freda, Sarah and Louise
