Forrest & Kim Davis here. Our hearts are saddened by Janet’s passing. She was a ray of sunshine and The Most Positive person, always. We rented a home next door to Art & Jan about 35 years ago and we became friends for life. Janet tried diligently to teach me to sew & become more creative. She Tried!! We had many laughs during these lessons. 😬 We always enjoyed catching each other up on Julie, David, Jeffrey, Tammy and all the grandkids, as well as our own. We have moved away from the area but whenever we made it to Bangor, Janet was always on our visit list. We loved her dearly and our thoughts and prayers go out to her cherished family.
