So many childhood memories! One of my favorites was meeting up at St A's ball diamonds, after a good hard rain, to run barefoot in the mud. Totally unaware we totally messing up the field! Also, admiring what a good skater you were at the Fun Spot skating parties. Rest in peace, Janel. My deepest sympathy to your family.

Deepest sympathy to Jimmy and the rest of the family. Janel was a fun lady, always lending a listening ear to anyone in need and always one to participate in any charity events at the dealership. She sure loved God and her Christian music as well! May you rest in peace, Janel!
