One Condolence
  1. Janet and I were best friends through middle and junior high school. She was a true friend……….honest, warm, smart, and funny. We loved playing sports together and walking home from school every day. My sincere sympathy goes out to her brother Walt, her beloved John, and the entire family. I will miss her.
