Please accept my condolences although I only know of her through Sabrina, I know she (Janet) is a special person through Sabrina and our Lord Jesus Christ! May Janet go Rest In Peace as her work on earth is finished and the Lord called her home!!!

So sad and hard to let go of our loved ones. But knowing they are with our Heavenly Father is comfort for our hearts and souls. It won’t be long until Jesus will be back for His people and we shall never ever part again. Love you all and my prayers are with you all. God bless and know I love you all. So glad in my heart Janet isn’t suffering anymore.
