Gary and Family, I have so many fond memories of growing up with Janet. We lived but a stones throw away from one another. Many countless hours were spent camping with her and the entire family as well as just “hanging out” throughout our school years. I was saddened to read of her passing. It brought all those wonderful memories flooding back. Bless each and everyone of you. -Cheri (Roberts) Brouwer-
