My heartfelt sympathy to all of you: Nancy, Mike, Scott and your families. I have fond memories of Janet [and Walter]. I enjoyed Janet's ready wit and her big smiles. We had many the pleasant chats in bygone years. They were both very good to me when I worked in the store during my college years. I hope your own memories will serve you well. Best, Ed Boyd

i'm very sorry to hear the loss of Ms. Janet. May the words found In God's word give your family and friends some comfort and peace in this difficult time. (“He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”​—Revelation 21:4) This is God’s promise that doing away with mankind’s ultimate enemy​—"death".
