    John, Jill, Ken , Jodi and Pat, and extended family,
    I will miss Janets daily hugs and hello’s. She was such a vivacious, thoughtful, charismatic and loving lady. I am a better person for having known her. Any day that she crossed my path, I knew would be a good day. Her laughter and love were both contagious. She was one of those special people who could inspire you instantly. Her smiley eyes and beautiful soul will be greatly missed. She ment the world to me. My heart goes out to all of you. Much love to each of you

  • Gordon and Shirley Lewis says:

    While we only knew Janet through her association with Petro Canada, she has left a feeling of great loss with us. Most certainly she became one of our favorite persons in the Glenmore Valley. She had a way of making every customer that passed through the Station doors feel like they were her favorite and never failed to greet them accordingly.
    Gordon recalls fondly her friendly greeting to him and “Kiki” each morning when they picked up the Globe and Mail and her letting Kiki sneak in back of the counter to devour Harveys breakfast.
    We regret not having been able to attend the service and I am sure the late Kiki and Harley feel the same way.
    John, our since condolences. Janet was one of kind.

  • Linda Huynink says:

    Dear John, Jill & Jodi:
    May the wonderful memories of Janet help to get you through difficult times. She will always be close watching over you. I feel so blessed to have had her a part of my life journey.
    I have a picture that she gave me ..the quote is “Live the life you dreamed, Laugh every day of your life, Love with all your heart”. This is truly something Janet did. I will forever cherish this.
    My heart goes out to you and your family. XO
