My Aunt Janet was a vital part of my life from little on up. From spending nights there to drowning my cookies. Laying on Simba, riding dusty, going to feed Mary. Playing a trick on her at Grandma's, to dad dying, me being sick, Christmas, picnics. She was there. And talking on the phone. She was and is so special. And her and Uncle Galen made some very special son's. Love you guys with all my heart
