    Janet was a wonderful and caring person and greatly missed by her co-workers. She gave so much of her time to our Santa Committee to make a happy Christmas for our disabled consumers. Her spontaneous sense of humor always made us laugh. My deepest prayers to her family, she is greatly missed.

    Janet was an amazing person. I had the privilege of working side by side with her and learning a lot about work and life from her. She was a woman of great wisdom and humor. She always seemed to know the right things to say and to remain positive. She will live on in my memories as an exceptional person. My thoughts are with her family. She will be greatly missed.

    Janet will be greatly missed. She and I started at Alta on the same day. I will always remember her as being gracious, kind, and willing to help others.

    I was very saddened to hear of Janet’s passing; she was a sweet person and always seemed to have a smile on her face. I only worked with Janet for a little over a year, but during that time, I learned that she loved horses, her family and her husband’s cooking. She will be missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy. I worked with Janet for about 6 years at Alta Regional. It’s going to be very different around here without Janet. God Bless you. Marcie Morgan

    Janet is survived by her sons Michael and Gavin.

    Janet & I worked together in vendorization. We had a nickname for each other “Airhead”. She had this dry sense of humor and always an “off the wall” comeback that would send me in fits of laughter. We loved teasing each other. I will miss Janet. She was a kind and gentle soul. Airhead, wherever you are rest peacefully God bless you and I will miss you so …MJ

    I have worked with Janet for many years. She always made me laugh as she understood how business politics could drive us crazy. She would just make light of the matter and go forward with her work. I will always remember working with her and having her feed me. She always had snacks like chips and dip, who would imagine, that she would share as we worked side by side. I will miss her tremendously as she understood more than she would speak. My deepest sympathies for her family and freinds who share in the loss of a wonderful life. Take care and remember all the good things. Gini

    Please accept my deepest sympathy. Janet and I have worked in the same department for 6 years. We periodically talked about the classes she had been taking at college, the retreats she enjoyed going on and her best activity; riding horses. I truly will miss Janet. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

  12. Terry Gutierrez on February 18, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    Janet was a co-worker and a precious friend. I will remember our fun times and laughter we shared while together horseback riding. Once, she had given me a good luck charm, and I will always hold it deeply to my heart. Thank you Janet for who you were and I will always remember you. Love, Terry

    Janet was my very dear sister-in-law, and I loved her very much. She always brought smiles to my face. She was such a loving soul, and she made her husband David the luckiest man alive. She is deeply missed by us all. Thank you everyone for your prayers and wishes.

  14. Cheryl Bakos-Valdez on February 20, 2009 at 11:12 pm

    You are so loved and so missed. You were the greatest thing that happened to David. I will NEVER forget you and your beautiful eys, dry sense of humor and love for my brother. Love and miss you always, Cheryl

    My Aunt Janet was a beautiful, loving, and compassionate woman. Although I did not know her “very well,” I witnessed her open, caring manner, and was touched by her strength of character and her positive attitude. I am glad David was here to fill her up with love before she left us. I believe she had a lot more to offer than she ever realized. I will never forget my brief times spent with Janet.

  18. Lynne Mundon on February 21, 2009 at 12:52 am

    Janet, I’ll always think of you as such a great friend, sister and riding buddy; I miss you so much even though I know you’re with me spiritually. I’m so glad we had a great ride before you left for MO. I will take great care of your horse and help Dave to fulfill all his promises to you. You had come so far and touched more lives than you ever realized. See you in the next life.
    Love Always, Lynne, Austin, Guido, Winter, Bravo, Boo-Kitty, Angel and Roofer.

    i wait for your phone call……i wait for you to walk through the front door at night…………this is soo unfair!!!

  20. Laura Blanton on February 21, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    Janet, You touched so many lives in ways you will never know. Your smile brightened my day, and it was a joy to watch you discover the connection between a horse and rider. I am so grateful to have known you and have you as part of my life, if only briefly. You taught me to always remember that we are all connected in unique ways. You shared a love for horses, and a drive to learn how to “dance” with them through the silent language of dressage. I watched you grow, and blossom into a beautiful person in the loving friendship and kindess of your friends like Lynne, and your loving husband Dave. I will always remember you, and think of how tragic life can be to take such beauiful person away from us so quickly and unexpectedly. I know this though; that the body is just a vessel, and the precious spirit that is contained inside is only freed when the body is gone. The spirit lives on to continue touching those vessels full of spirit here on Earth. We love you, we will miss you, we will NEVER forget you, and Halim will continue to carry your spirit, until he joins you one day to dance with you again. May your world be filled with beauty as great as the beauty you brought to those you touched in life.
    With deepest love and respect; your friend, Laura.
    P.S. Give my Mom a hug for me. I know you two will be good friends!

    Janet, I never took the time out to tell you how much you really meant to me. You did so many thing that im sure no other woman could have acheieved. You turnd my dads life around for the better. You taught him how to save money and prioritize. You taught him the importance of being a better person and it shows, but most of all you made him smile, i miss that, you made him the happiest man on earth. You also helped me mature through the time that you were here. You always helped me make the right decisions and you always took the time out to help me understand certain things when i was confused. I never told you enought , but i reall did care and i really did love you, and i still do. Thankyou for everything you did, nothing will change. love always, Chelsea. i miss you.

    Words can not express the depth of sympathy I feel. I’ve only known Janet for a short time but her soul was so familiar to me from the start. We became aquanited at Alta Regional and she was my “go to” person in vendorization. I will always remember her as “My Buddy”. May God give us the comfort and strength we need to go on.

  23. Cody Bakos on February 22, 2009 at 10:42 pm

    This is all so hard to grasp… I miss you and love you alot. I wish we could’ve talked a little more than we did. And heaven seems so far away… Yet so close for a moment that should never have been. And that moment took you away from this world but, not away from us! We love you and we will all meet again at some point. I hope you are doing well now. We appreciate everything you’ve done for us! Miss you!

  24. Doug Kierulff on February 23, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Janet, Although I would have liked to have spent more time with you, your sincerity, loving, and compassion was so evident whenever I saw you. I recall our time in Los Angeles, giving you a tour all around the city… your spontaneous and joyful spirit was so palpable. Although you will be greatly missed by all those who love you, I can just imagine the peace, joy and contentment you bring to the heavens. In our hearts, you live on.
    Love, your nephew, Doug
