Janet was such a lovely person and was blessed to have at her side her adoring husband Bob. All of us were so saddened by her passing, and felt a terrible loss for this women who was so brave in her last days. It is not often when one of us leaves the others behind that we have felt such remorse. Our sincere condolences to her beloved family, and especially to Bob, who was so kind to all of us. May she rest in peace knowing that she was so cherished.
