Janet left a note in her Bible which we wish to share with all; “I AM WITH YOU STILL”.
I give you this one thought to keep, I am with you still – do not weep. When you awaken in morn’s light, do not think of me as gone. I am with you still – in each day of dawn.
A memorial service will be scheduled at Mount Gilead Cemetery, 1457 E. 464th Road, Bolivar MO. 65613, at a later date for the convenience of the family members.
