    Janet was a dear and beautiful friend going back to our nursing college days at Alfred in 1968, as we were roommates. There is so much good I can say about Jani (as I used to call her), that I don’t know where to start. We lost touch a few times over the years but then always reconnected. I want Matt and Julia to know how fondly she talked of them with so much love. I don’t think Janet had a mean bone in her body and always demonstrated loving kindness to all. I will miss you my sweet friend.

    Seems those small speakers depend on being set down on something. Be interesting to see if the results are the same "suspended’ in the air. Thx in advance.

    We are so grateful for the life of Janet Sally. She gave us a wonderful daughter in law and was a great grandmother to our grandchildren. Her life was full of love and joy. Praying for her family and friends as they grieve.

    Janet was a faithful, compassionate, funloving friend. She went on a missionary trip to the Phillipiness with a church group. My husband enjoyed getting to know her then.. I enjoyed our lunches together. Hoping to do more.

    Mrs. Scally was a music mom to anyone who needed, back in my high school days. I am so sorry for this loss for her family and friends. What a cherished person who gave so much of herself! I am glad that she had faith in Jesus – gives hope to be able to see her again!
