We remember well working with you at Twin Wells (now Sun Valley) Indian School. God was with us there and He is with us now during this time of sorrow. We loved both of you very much.

Lane, Janelle, and their 3 girls were at Grace Point in March for our Faith Promise Sunday. I know the family well because we attended Huntington First Church with Carol Zurcher and the Garguilio family for over 12 years. I had just joined the Grace Point staff (as the children's pastor) 7 months prior to Janelle's family coming a few weeks ago. As the children's pastor, I am often one of the very last ones to leave after church on

Remember many things from working together at Twin Wells, now Sun Valley Indian School. Remember making our first trip to the mountains of Show Low and seeing the green grass and trees, with there none being at the school. Remember going camping in the mountains. Remember you smile and sweet spirit. Janelle was truly a Godly women. The world was better for having her.

Lane, Joy, Laura and Sarah....our prayers are with you as you have had to say a sudden good bye to your amazing mom/beloved wife. She was a sensitive, lovely lady who often comforted others. We are sure her precious words, tender gestures and life example of depending on Christ are comforting you now. We are remembering times when she did that for us, like 19 years ago when we were serving in PNG together. Our daughter, Sarah, was being evacuated

Praying for the family at the loss of a mother, wife, daughter, and sister plus daughter-in-law, sister-in- law, aunt and cousin. May everyone feel God's love and care at this tragic time and the many days that lay ahead for everyone. May the prayers of others give you strength for each day.

Janelle was a cute, joyful, talented little girl that I had the joy to grow up (for 8 years) with in South Africa. We were like family during those early years.

Blessing to all~ Judy

Dear Lane and Girls,
Our heart breaks as we think of your loss. Janelle blessed us during our time in Papua New Guinea. She hosted the baby shower for Byron, our first born and we won't ever forget her generous, loving spirit and fantastic smile. You are in our prayers!

Janelle was a few years older than me, so was not a close friend, but I always looked up to her as an amazing role model of the kind of Christian I wanted to be.

Our families shared many meals together in the Johannesburg area. One memory I will never forget was when Norman and Carol were at our home for a meal one evening during the time Janelle was at Olivet. They had received a letter from her about

Janelle and I served together on the NEI Women's Ministry Council. I enjoyed her fellowship and her great love for our Lord. She was a wonderful Christian example for all she come in contact with. What a joy to know her and serve on the council with her. My deepest sympathy to Lane, daughters and family members.
