    I wish to express my sincerest sympathy to the Smith, Dawe family and friends because of losing Ms. Janet recently in death. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:23-25

    There was only one Mrs Janet and I am so grateful to have had her in my life. There was no one that could ask questions, clarify topics, and doodle like her. Even how she would speak made me smile. In high school she was one of my biggest cheerleaders. In college, she and her loving Mr Joe, would welcome me into their home for occasional weekends. She celebrated graduations and my wedding with excitement. Every phone call we had would end with her asking me if I was still in love. Grateful our children were able to meet her. So many memories I will treasure. Life has happened and I’ve not been able to visit and talk with her as much as I would have wanted but our last conversation was such a LOVELY (as she would say) conversation. As per normal, she was still cheering me on. Everyone needs a Mrs Janet in their lives. Love you Mr Joe, Rex, and Jeff. You will remain in our prayers.

    Joe, Rex, & Jeff,
    The news of Janet’s death has hit me so hard. Janet is one of the dearest people I’ve known and worked with. She was so much more to me than an excellent employee & co-worker, but a trusted and dear friend. Her sweet ways will always be a reminder of her goodness. She loved the 3 of you, and I felt as if I knew you so well because she talked about you so much. I’m so, so sorry for your loss.
