The family requests that attending guests wear BRIGHT COLORS in honor of Janet’s vibrant loving spirit.

“She draws on her strength and reveals that her arms are strong. She sees that her profits are good, and her lamp never goes out at night. She extends her hands to the spinning staff, and her hands hold the spindle. Her hands reach out to the poor, and she extends her hands to the needy. She is not afraid for her household when it snows, for all in her household are doubly clothed.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:17-21‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
