My sympathies to you all! I remember the "bag lady" ... stenciling hoops, wood, placemats ... birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas Eve ... lots of laughs, some tears, and friendship! Reply to this comment

So saddened to hear of Janet's passing. We have many memories of growing up in North Reading, our church family, the Lloyd's and the "Lake" in East Andover, NH, and many family events shared through the years. Our thought and prayers go out to Amanda, Rebecca, Nicholas and their families; to Sue & Chuck, Doug, Randi and their family. ~Mark & Kathy Rideout, Somersworth, NH Reply to this comment

Janet, I was so blessed by your presence at our red hat luncheons and other activities. I still can't believe you will no longer be there and will miss you greatly. In life we meet many people and you are one who will linger long in my heart and my memories. Reply to this comment
