    Hi Saab It’s Debbie I just saw that Janis passed away and I wanted to check up on you and let you know how very sorry I am to hear that. I know just how you feel right now. It’s been four years since Ronnie past away and I still look for him. My worst fears is forgetting how his voice sounded or his favorite things but somehow the memories come flying through at my lowest times. Janis was a wonderful person and she always lifted my spirits when things got bad for me. I truly love and appreciate everything you and Janis did for my husband and my family. She’s going to be missed by all many I’m sure. I know I miss you both very much. I still have those wonderful watercolor paintings she did for me. They are hanging up on the wall by my bed so I can enjoy them. Dawn you are always in my heart and my prayers. I’m sure that Janis is still with you in spirit. I know how much you both loved each other. Again Saab I’m truly sorry for your loss.
