    Janet was one of the kindest women I have ever known. I will never forget Don and Janet and all our wonderful trips on the volleyball bus, especially the trips to Boonville when Janet would go with us. They were truly an essential part of the volleyball family at FHS for many years. They were so proud of their children and grandchildren. It is our loss and heaven’s gain. I will always hold dear my memories of this wonderful couple and I know they are united again.
