Janet loved animals and shared a heartful connection with each of them. Her horses brought essential joy with their grace, beauty, and spirit. Her dogs shared their loyalty, unconditional love, and companionship. She was a member of the Bitts and Bridle Saddle Club and enjoyed playing the bass guitar, sharing its beautiful melody. Most of all, Janet adored her family. Each of them held a very special place in her heart, bringing her more joy than she ever expected.
