Hi Gary and all on the list serve. I remember Janet from childhood 
and even through later years. She and Mark came over several times 
and we also saw them at chapter meetings. Janet gave me a tape with 
different artists. Probably my best memory of her was going to the 
St. Louis Galleria mall and meeting Vince Gill. Unfortunately, I 
don't still have the autographed CD of his, but I still have the 
memory. Janet got her CD signed to Jannis, instead of Janet,. I guess 
she fantasized about being his wife. She drove me home afterword and 
we listened to it. I also remember her sweet singing voice. She will 
be missed.At 10:50 AM 11/23/2010, you wrote:
