      So sorry for your loss. Over the years Janet was a loving friend. Just heard of her passing. And read her obituary. It’s strange how you think you know someone and find out after their gone much more. My maiden name was Dawn Freel. My father was Paul Freel who passed many years ago, but worked with her father. I went into the credit union to see her smiling face and heard of the loss of a great soul.
