I am so sorry to hear of Janet’s passing. She was a sweet girl and raised a wonderful family. I have known her since high school days (mid 50’s)….She was a classmate and friend of my sister, Joanne. I know that you all will miss her terribly, but we all believe she has gained her Heavenly reward. God be with you all. Sincerely, Helene

Dear Ken, Barry, Eric, and the entire Wolfe family,

Your mother was a terrific person as she raised six wonderful people to carry on her joy. There is no doubt she is with the Lord Jesus. I pray that your faith lifts you through this immediate loss, knowing you will see her again someday.

Our prayers are with your family,

The Robucks
