    candle 3I’m very sorry for your loss Eddie! Your whole family is in my prayers. Jan gave me my first job and I worked for her at Pet Stock for a few years. She always got us an ornament at X-mas and even when I quit she would send me one. She was a great woman and very intelligent. I hate to hear of her passing.😢💐

    Such a beautiful soul. Sorry to hear she has passed. She was there many times in the years I worked for her. Not only as a boss but as a friend.

    Janet took excellent care of my mother during the last few years of her life. My mom loved her, as did all of our family. I used to refer to her as “the sweetest woman in the world” – because she was. Janet was the most selfless person I ever met. I loved her spirit and perpetual bright outlook which never wavered, even in her last days. I am blessed to have had her in my life. I miss her already but I am comforted knowing she is at peace and playing Bingo with my mom up in Heaven.
