I first met Jan back in 1990 when we both worked at Lazurus. Years later we worked at Walmart together. The first time she was catching the bad guys. Then it was my turn! We swapped stories of our successes and had a lot of laughs. What a beautiful lady inside and out. She will be greatly missed.

It was always a joy being greeted by Janet. So sad to see her leave us too soon. Deepest sympathies to her family. Hope knowing she made people's lives better by just being her will sooth your loss some.
