Aunt Janie was the last living of my Aunt and Uncles, but she was the most wonderful. She had a great family life and she gave everyone else the same. Nephew Harry

I am sure she, Jewel and mother are having a great reunion, as well as the rest of the family. I am sure she was more than ready to go. I have great memories.
