Aunt Janie,

Thank you for being such a loving great Auntie! The memories I have go way back to when I was still in elementary school and when Therese and I spent time at your home while Mom worked.

You were a inspiration to everyone to keep pressing forward, love the Lord with all of our being and love people regardless of their culture. We will never forget you tenacity as a preacher, teacher and business woman. Your family calls you blessed.

Say hello to all the family that are in heaven. I'm sure the reunion was beautiful. I love you, miss you, and will see you soon. God is good!

Christopher (Nina) Anderson and family.
