You now soar with the angels. I was one of your teachers at Ken-O-Sha Preschool. You had a spark in your eye and your face lit up with your beautiful smile.
We knew you were smart and inspirational. You will always be lovingly remembered.

I remember Janett from KenOSha. I used to help her out by bringing her medicine down to the nurses office at the end of lunch. When I got back in the classroom, I always gave her a hug and sometimes a kiss on her forehead. I know Janett loved butterflies and swimming. She used to have stickers on her wheelchair. At Alger School I remember she loved to dance. When I saw her again after High school at Straight school, she asked me aobut my mom and dad and how they were doing. I told her they are doing great! Janett was an awesome friend and I will miss her. Your friend, Maria

Those eyes, that laugh, that spirit. Janett reminded you of why you became a special educator in the first place. With her smile and earnest effort, she gave me strength to try harder with the next child. I owe her a debt of gratitude for so enriching my experience and faith. Janett, I will never forget you..
