    A truly lovely lady. She always seemed to be on a mission, and with that, always came a smile. It was always a treat to be in her company. My thoughts and prayers are with your family, during this sad time.

  7. Paula McGee

    I LOVE each and everyone of you, and even though I live so far away, I think or each one of you from time to time. Aunt Janie, as well as Uncle Wayne were so kind and such a good lisner as I was with them right after I has lost my brother Rick in the 1970’s and I will always be greatful for the love they both showed me. Aunt Janie was such a mothering figure and all the children were blessed to have her as well as a wonderful wife to Uncle Wayne. Hope you will find some comfort as you pull together in this sad time. Love, Paula {Freeman} McGee from Albany,GA.
