I first met Mrs. Janine a little of over a year ago. She quickly brought me into the family making me feel like her own son. I aswell loved her like my own mother. Her loving nature was something I looked foward to daily. She was qick to make fun of my little comments that I made almost daily and I loved it. She always made me feel welcome. I will never forget her, she touched my heart and i will always miss her. I’m gonna mis her hugs and candid pictures of us kids :). I love you Momma 2. I will always keep your memory in my heart.
I always miss you Ms. Janine and i love you yuo’ll always stay in my heart !

My Mom was and still is one of the most open hearted people. She is my biggest inspiration, hero, best friend, and an amazing mother. She has truly made a difference not only to her family but to many other lives. I love you so much mom you’re so strong. I’ll see you one day soon
Janine was one of a few that I will ever call my friend. I will miss your laughter and smile. I will miss our talks over books and kids and their growing pains. I love you and know that you are with God and in peace.
Always friends forever.
Janine helped me in school and when my husband was on deployment she just welcome me in. I could always go to janine house and she would always know what to say I will truly miss you but I will never forget you.
Hey Mrs. Janine, it’s your Richard. I miss you so much, the first thing I thing about every morning is you still being here and I just know that one day I will see you again. I will always remember the good times we had for a short time, I knew you always loved me, because I always loved you. I still do. I remember what you told me in the hospital that day you and eric renewed your vows and I will never forget that ever. That will be with me til we meet again. I just wanted you to know that I will help who you told me to help that day and everyone else. I want you to know that I care and love G-Ma, Eric, Ashley, Aimee, Chris, Emily, Zach, and everyone of the family. I only had a short time with you and I wish I could have more, just to tell you that I do love you because I never got the chane to say it to you in person, and I knew you knew everytime I kissed your forehead before I went to work or went anywhere. Everyday I will always think of you and the memories we shared together. The only thing I wanted was for you not be in any more pain and now you can rest in paradise and be our guardian angel. You remember when I told you life if like a box of chocolates, you never know which one you’re going to get, and I said you got the best one. You touched so many people and you will always be in our hearts. You’re not here physically, but I know you are in heaven looking down on us and smiling. Im always going to love you Mom, words couldn’t explain how much I do, but I know you know. Forever carrying out my promise to you Mom, I Love You Rest in Paradise 11/20/1965-11/26/2010
-Love Your Son, Richard
Our deepest sympathy to the entire family. She touched my sons ( Cody Butz )Heart greatly .I am truly sorry for your familys loss.
Janine was an awesome friend and classmate, taken away too soon. She helped me come “out of my shell” and for that,I am eternally grateful. She was the kind of wife and mother every woman hopes to be. Rest in peace, my friend. I’ll see you some day soon.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. May she rest in peace.
Janine, You have touched so many lives. You have made a place for yourself in many hearts. As Your older sister I wasn’t there for you in the way you would have liked, in the way you wanted, and because of that you thought I didn’t care. That is so not true. I have and always will love you, for you are not only “Mom” & “Daughter” & “Friend” but you are also MY sister. And I have always been proud of you. I remember as a kid your only wish was to be a mom, you wanted 10 kids, and your first daughter you were going to name Ashley. You did just that.( Ihope you have LaLa with you too) 😉
You still have that very special place in my heart you always had, which is what made our fight all the more foolish. Thank you for the time we had back home in June. Those memories mean more to me then you will ever truly know.
Janine, I know that now you reside in peace, your body is no longer broken, you no longer suffer the pain of cancer. You are again that beautiful young woman, that happy child, that beautiful, strong spirit we all love, and will miss.
I love you my sister. And because we lost forever the future memories that we will no longer have a chance to make and share.
Aunt Janine always bought me candy. She was one of the best aunts I ever had. Ig will alway love her.
We will miss you Aunt Janine. We had a great time when we visited you with my mom in July. You were our favorite Aunt ever and you gave the best hugs. Old Josh misses you too.
Janine was a good friend of mine in grade school. I remember having a sleepover right around the time of the great blizzard of 1979 and having a great time in the snow and making money shoveling. We went to different high schools and didn’t keep in touch, but I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing. I wish her family peace and comfort in this time of sorrow. Your wife and mom was really a great person.
