To Janet’s family,
I am saddened by the news of her departure, though someone with such a sweet and caring disposition will enjoy her time ahead in the company of angels. I attended high school at Hempfield with Janet and we were in the same home room (alphabetically close) and though I have not seen her in person for more than 50 years, I can still see her warm smile. I send my prayers and deepest sympathies and condolences to Janet’s entire family and will keep you in my prayers.
Sincerely,
Tom Patrick

Psalm 24:5

Dear Harry and family,
Nevin and I want to extend our sympathies to you as you adjust to life without Janet. Knowing she is with the Lord is a comfort , but there is always sadness and grief.
“As a mother comforts her child,
so will I comfort you………” Isaiah 66:13
Under His wing with you,
Gail Huber [Nevin, too]
