  • Janet’s family,

    I was a classmate of Janet’s at Kenton High School. She was the only member of your family that I knew. My husband, Bill, and I, will be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. I had no idea that Janet was ill and will be eager to know what happened. I hope she didn’t have a long and drawn out illness. You have my e- mail address should you wish to let me know what caused her death.
    God Bless,
    Tanyce and Bill Lang
