    My Sister was the most compassionate, loving Sister a girl could have. We met for the first time the year 1954. That time was the best part of my life knowing I had two wonderful Sisters and I was not going to be alone for she and Peggy would by my Sisters all my life. Janet you are missed but will always be apart of my life.
