I only met Janet once when our Church sang Christmas carols to her. She sang along and enjoyed each one. I know she was a loving caring person, because I am fortunate to know her foster daughter Katie. Janet touched many lives with her generous giving of herself to the many children to whom she provided love and nurturing. She will be greatly missed here on earth but welcomed home in Heaven above.

We look forward to the time we will be united with our loved ones again. The Bible tell us at John 5:28-29, that this could be possible. It read as following:(28) Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice+ (29) and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.+

Janet was a very special person in our lives, as our dear daughter, Katie, was her very first foster child.Janet went "above and beyond the call of duty" in her foster parenting.When we brought Katie home, Janet sent a full photo album of Katie's first four months, something we never expected.She also sent a brimming bag of stuffed animals and dolls, all purchased or received for Katie.And then on each birthday, Janet would come, bearing a ceramic birthday girl to add to the collection. It was a blessing to know her, and to see the love she manifested on so many foster babies.What an inspiration!
