I work in the office at the church where Janet attended. I always enjoyed her smile and her spunk. My favorite memory of her is when she asked me to play Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars on my computer and she started dancing with a huge smile on her face. Now she's dancing in heaven. I'm very sorry for your loss. She will be missed.
