    Janie you were an inspiration to me. You loved so Fiercely. Lived life to its fullest. You found beauty in everyday. I love all that you shared with me and your life. I know it was a hard road. But you can rest peacefully knowing you are home. You heart no longer hurts. I thought you would live forever and sadden by the loss. Fly high friend. Spread your wings.
    Hugs and prayers to your family. May God comfort you.

    I extend my prayers and deepest sympathy to Cayce and all of Janie’s extended family.
    Janie and I were not close friends but we shared a special bond – the death of one of our children (who happened to be classmates at Franklin High School). Christmas memorials at Joann’s Outdoor Classroom were always very special, heart warming and healing. Janie had a beautiful spirit and was full of compassion for those around her. Her passing into eternal life leaves a personal sadness in my heart because I have lost the connection we shared with our deceased children – but I am comforted to know that she is reunited with Joann for eternity. That thought brings me much joy.

    Lee and Family,

    Cayce, your mom was definitely one-of-a-kind. I don’t generally look at the obits unless I am looking for mine.
    My husband saw Jane’s picture and that is how we found out about her death.. I had no idea she had been sick. Janie and I, over the last 36 years, have shared our love for cardinals and what they mean to her. I saw baby ones yesterday, a precursor to what I would learn last night?

    She loved all your family so very much. Although you and I have never met, I know a lot about your family.

    Please accept my condolences and know she is with Joann and other angels. God bless you each and every one.

    Today, I found out about Janie’s death. What a special woman she was! She loved her family so much! She was courageous and took on the challenges that she knew were important. She even courageously faced into JoAnn’s death and tried to help others through similar situations. I will miss her Facebook posts and knowing she is right up the road. However, I know she is dancing in heaven with JoAnn and our Lord.

    Just received this unexpected news. Janie was my oldest friend. She had a personal relationship with the angels. She is now among them.

    I miss you, Janie. I admired you in so many ways.
    You gave the most authentic and real hugs I’ve ever experienced.
    If you were ever hugged by her, you know what I mean.
    I was blessed to have known you and to call you my friend.
    Until we meet again, all my love, Tina
