  1. I have such special memories growing up with my sister and our neighborhood friends. My special memories, which I will always cherish, are her visits each year of two or three weeks when we moved to Missouri and Florida. I love Janet and will see her again in Heaven. God Blessed me with a beautiful sister.

  3. I have wonderful memories growing up as the kid next door. There was lots of music in the neighborhood and we were all often found around the Eastburn’s piano singing the popular songs of the day and playing some as piano duets. It all seems like yesterday. My deepest sympathy to Janet’s family (whom I do not know). Do know that your mother was a dear friend. I know she will be missed. My prayers are with you all.
