You will remain in my thoughts as well, Dave. Janet was well served by your loving devotion to her care. Well done, my friend.

Heaven gained an Angel in the passing of this special lady. Janet has paved the way for all of us during her battle with cancer. Her endurance of the many side effects of cancer drugs during her treatments has made it possible for knowledge, research and testing beyond measure.
Our condolences to the family. May you find peace in knowing she gave so much
