    The world lost an amazing woman & my life will never be the same without her.

  2. Dorene Eilenstine Says:

    Janet was about 5 months older than I and we spent days or weeks together and in many ways were best friends as well as cousins. While my older sister read books, Janet and I had fun! This lasted until high school when my parents (at least mother) instructed me to maximize earnings.She even was unhappy when my church gave me a scholarship to a camp in Wisconsin (transportation included). By this time our contacts were limited but always enjoyable.
    We always loved and enjoyed each other even when a long distance kept our times together very limited. Our cousinship was always dear to me. I turning 82 next month am and will miss her!
