Loving thoughts to this sweet woman who opened her heart and became a mother to not only the son she gave birth to but to a beautiful little girl that we hold near and dear. We thank Janet for bringing Chellie and the Shaffer family to us, they are our cousins, our friends, our loving family. We were lucky to spend time with Janet these last few years while she visited California-always a fun, relaxing time. Brian was lucky to have her as an Aunt. Rest in Peace sweet Janet. We wish we could be with you but know that we are sending loving thoughts. Wishing you and your family Peace Chace and Chellie. Love The Brian and Lisa Helleland Family & Glanville's
My deepest thoughts, prayers and sympathy to Chace, Chellie, Dalton, Cole and Sydney. You were all the brightest star of your mom and grandma's heart - she loved every moment that she could spend with each of you. Read somewhere that crying is a way that your eyes speak when your mouth can't explain how broken you heart is! That is so true, we all loved Janet so much but God loved her more by taking away her pain and making her our Angel! We will always cherish the many memories that we have tucked away in our hearts, but Janet is now with God and her joy is Eternally sealed. Love forever dearest friend until we meet again.
