Dear Julia, I never really knew your mother, I met her once and that was at our choir concert. I'm sure she was so very proud of you. You were so lucky to have such a wonderful mother, cherish the memories, and I'll cherish my memories with you.

Remember the years we lived across the street from your family in Pine Bluff, AR. Janessa was always a lively, enthusiastic, joyful child. We have sweet memories of those years when the neighborhood kids were carefree, in each other's yards, playing in the creek that ran nearby, and we didn't worry about their safety. Rest in the arms of Jesus, sweet Janessa.

Makayla and I want to express our sympathy to you. Even though I personally had only a short acquaintance with her, I liked her positive outlook.
Try to remember the fun things that you and your mom did together to help ease a little of the pain you are feeling now.
Our prayers and deepest sympathy,
Judy Roberts and Makayla Rowell
