Mrs. Janie was truly a wonderful person, with such a tremendous loving spirit. It was our pleasure to have been neighbors with her in Butner. Our children have many fond memories of visits with Mrs. Janie. She was one of the sweetest people in the world, and we were blessed to have her as a friend. We miss you dearly, Mrs. Janie. Rest in eternal peace until we see you again.
