Wayne, so very sorry for your loss. Janet was a special lady and will be missed. Have memories which go way back when Wendell played softball for C&P and Janet would come to the games. Losing a special loved one is tough. Take care of yourself.
Your friend and former neighbor,
I am so sad to hear about Janet’s passing. I met her and got to know here while her mother was at Elizabeth Crump nursing home and my fiancé, Les Harris, was there. We had so many nice chats and I remember she loved her sports cars. Prayers for the family.
-Wayne- I am saddened to learn of Janet’s passing. Please accept my condolences at this time. I remember many fun times with you and Janet. You two were a special couple, and the love you shared was so very obvious. I, too, as you probably know, lost a special lady in 2019. It’s not easy! Be strong and remember the many, many wonderful memories through the years you had together. I am sure that Janet heard those precious words “well done my good and faithful servant”. May God bless you with strength and peace.
Wayne my condolences on the passing of janet. It was a pleasure knowing and working with her at the bell system. She was always someone you enjoyed being around
