Where do I start? To the Holt family I would like to extend my total sympathy …
Janie was a great person …
I’ve known Janie for more years that I care to count … Janie and I worked at Hallmark Cards at the same time … I know she was extremely proud of her Real Estate career …
The smile … always with the smile …
I think, as we get older we tend to lose track of people … even those that are living here …
I just wish I could see her one more time to tell her what a wonderful person she was ….
Larry Wepler

So sorry for your loss. She will be missed by everyone that knew her.
Bill & Connie (Foster) Savage.

Janie was an inspiration, her grace with her diagnosis and her smile is what I will remember.
