Janet will be remembered as a beautiful, loving, selfless woman. Her bravery, perseverance and strength – inspirational. Her kindness, compassion and generosity – honorable. She was extraordinary; the true definition of a hero.
Janet’s passion was her children. “My kids are my life. I love them more than any word can describe. They mean so much to me…”
Janet will be deeply missed, forever loved and always in our hearts.
We love you too, too, muches!
