Awwwww!  Rabbitt!  This makes me so sad.  She was such a sweet gal.  I remember visiting with her at the 2015 reunion.  May she Rest In Peace.😢

Very sad to hear this, Janet and we're good friends in junior high and high school.  She had the sweetest personality and she will be missed by many I'm sure.

Though we didn't know each other closely, I do remember passing Janet in the halls of BCHS.  We passed enough to smile in a recognizing way.  Bless you Janet on your new and beautiful journey.

I was sad to read of Janet's passing.  She and I re-connected a few years ago and met occasionally for coffee.  Janet was another of our sweet classmates, never saying an unkind word about anyone.  You will be missed!
