    My heart skipped a beat when my musician friend Shawn Hames introduced me to this beautiful lady around 1985. I watched my guy grow up over night and I knew it was because of her.

    I am the older brother of Janet. I missed many years of her life but I loved as though we never missed a day. I remember our father told me I had a little sister on the way. I couldn't quite understand what she was going mean in my life but it was a lot. I hope our family can remember all the good things about her. My wife and I both saw her strength. Well we will remember her and keep her in our prayers.
