    My deepest sympathy goes to Janet's family. She was a wonderful person whom I will miss. I graduated from Fulton High School with Janet, Class of 1968. I have continued to catch up with her at the FHS reunions. We will all miss her greatly at those gatherings. She was the driving force that kept our class connected.

    My heart goes out to the entire Pickney Family. Always remember the special moments you spent with Janet. Please find comfort in what the Bible says about the opportunity of seeing Janet again under the very best of conditions right here on the earth:  And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. (1 Corinthians 15:26) For more comfort please go to the following website and then search for "When Someone You Love Dies" Brochure.

    So sad to read about Janet...did not know her well, only met once, but do remember that she was a lovely person. I hope Edward is doing well....I have notified a bunch of Pickney cousins, will have her in our prayers.
