I considered Janis to be one of my very dearest friends. Her deep faith and knowledge of the Bible made our conversations a source of inspiration and blessing for me. She was also a very multitalented lady with outstanding skills in decorating, cooking and hand crafts. She was gifted at putting feet to her faith reaching out to handicapped children like my daughter Sandra Gail; taking food to grieving, sick and shut-in friends; calling to check on people. Her passing leaves a big hole in my heart.

I am so sorry for your loss. There is so much sorrow in the world. But the death of our loved ones brings the deepest sorrow of all. May Gods promise to help you through this difficult time bring you peace, (Isaiah 41:10) and his promise for the future (John 5:28, 29) give you a wonderful hope.
