    Janet Howell Video Tribute on Feb 13, 2018

    CandleIt was a blessing to know Janet even though it was a short time. May the family remember all the good times and laughter as you celebrate her life on Tuesday. Here is a poem I thought reminded me of your family.
    God saw you getting tired
    When a cure was not to be.
    So He wrapped His arms around you,
    and whispered, ""Come unto me".
    You didn't deserve what you went through,
    and so He gave you rest.
    God's garden must be beautiful,
    He only takes the best.
    So when I saw you sleeping,
    So peaceful and free from pain,
    I could not wish you to come back,
    to suffer that all again.
    Author Unknown
    May you feel God's presence and His loving arms around you all. Sherri/Bill Batts
