Janine is a treasured memory to family and friends. She was a women of many talents. I felt as if she was a sister instead of a sister-in-law to me. Her legacy of being a Godly woman, loving wife, mother and grandmother will be everlasting.
My sincere condolences, Doyce. I remember Janine as a kind and warm person, as well as an accomplished artist. My heart goes out to you and your family.
