  • Mr. Page,
    We are so sorry to hear about Jan passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

  • Albert,
    I’m saddened of the passing of Janet. But I can imagine that she is not asking Jesus, “What do you need? How can I help?” That was Janet’s way. She was a joy for all who knew here. God Bless.
