    My dear cousin Janet,
    Every time someone refers to you the very first thing they say is how sweet of a person you are. From the time when we were small children you were always so sweet and kind. I remember you always that way and know heaven will be a sweeter place just because you are there.

You were not only inspirational you were a kind sweet girl. I will always cherish our memories. I will forever remember the aura of love surrounding you. Always know how much I loved the life you gave Bee and Britt for that I will be eternally grateful. You were one of the world’s greatest souls and you will be missed far far beyond words. Forever my precious cousin, till we meet again.
