I also worked with Janet at DSS when she came back to the HEAP Unit. Her, Tina Kight and I shared an office together and we had some great laughs. Especially over cell phones. Janet just hated her ringing noise maker as she called it, and I would have to show her how to use it. We laughed so hard we had tears. Janet this world is a darker place today without you, but Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel. RIP gal. Thoughts and prayers to her family.
