    I don’t even know where to begin or how to put into words how much I love & appreciate my Sweet Aunt Jan’s love & emotional support all throughout my life!!! She has always been there for me, as I was going through some of the darkest times of my life & I am forever grateful to her for that & just for being such a WONDERFUL Aunt, in general!!! Just the sound of her soothing voice has always been so comforting to me…there was just something about it that made me feel like everything would be alright afterall…I just needed to stay strong & keep my faith & it
    always was & life became much better, thank God!!! I know that she is now with The Lord in Heaven & that my Daddy greeted her with his warm, loving embrace & his cheerful laughter, as he is undoubtedly happy to see her & have her in Heaven with him now too, along with Aunt Jan’s Mama, Grandma Julie!!! My heart is happy for her, in her now eternal bliss, but deeply sad for all of us, as we will miss her dearly, until one day when The Lord calls us home too & then we can all be joyfully reunited again forevermore!!! I love you so very much, my Sweet Aunt Jan & I always will!!!
    Love, Diana ~

    Mother, It has been my honor to take care of you these last 10 years. You are the best mom a girl could have. You have given me so many beautiful memories. Thanks for teaching me all those things I didn’t appreciate as a kid. But most especially for teaching me to be strong. I love you so much and miss you already. Love your eldest

    Please accept our condolences for the loss of your Mother. Our hearts goes out to you and we will keep you in our prayers. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to speak with her just recently when I called to check on her and you (Cori) happened to be right there with her at the hospital. I have many fond memories of “my cousin Janet”. May she Rest in Peace.

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    Please try to remind yourself often that the Bible says we will know and be known in Heaven and each of you will hang out and love on her again one day in eternity. I can picture her up their having a great time visiting her passed loved ones. And, how stunning she is restored back to her fullest beauty! I’m here if you just need someone to listen to you or to pray with.

    That’s a very lovely photo
    you posted here of your mom.
    Your mother became my friend when I lived and was rising my
    children in Eastlake”s Surfside Development. My husband got involved with a married woman and it broke my heart and and my children’s and caused the eventual break up of our home. Your mother was there to help and give me her support that I needed so much through that time. I WILL NEVER FORGET HER FOR THAT. She proved what a wonderful person and friend she was to me. She will be missed.
