So heartbroken to hear of the loss of sweet Janet. She led an exemplary life of a true Christian. Always filled with joy. When you were in her presence, she wanted to know all about you. She had the gift of hospitality, always welcoming others into her home. I am so blessed to have known her. My prayers will be constant for Darwin and his family. God Bless!
