Dear Chip and family,

I am so sorry to read about your mother’s passing. She was always so cheerful, caring, and kind. I remember she and your dad coming into Trantwood, always smiling and laughing. She was a wonderful person and I am glad that I knew her. Long after you were at Trantwood, I visited their bike shop and they were still so kind and helpful. She cared very much about you and was always interested in your progress and even after Kindergarten, whenever I saw her, she would always proudly fill me in about you. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless You and peace be with you.

Randy, Kathleen, Kevin, Colleen & Chip, Thank you for sharing your mom with me. I want to make sure that you ALL know how special your were in her eyes. After countless days sitting at the kitchen table I have heard all of the good & bad about Janie’s life & always the theme was her children. Yes, I know she could be critical, demanding, dramatic etc., but trust me, I was on the receivng end of all of that too. What she always had was pride in her children and grand children. Whatever crap she may have given you, I always heard how much she loved you all and how proud she was of each of you in your own uniqueness. Her biggest wish was that her children would heal all wounds and keep the family intact after her death. That gave her a peace at the end that meant more than anything. Colleen & Chip, thanks for including me at the service. I meant more than you can ever know. Your mom always called me her adopted daughter, but my biggest tribute can be to tell you that she was my best friend. I will miss her more than I can express, she was a very special lady. She gave me a t-shirt once that said GRITS: girls refined in the south. It was our mantra & once againn I just want to say thanks for sharing her.
