Dear Family, I just want to say my heart really wishes I could be there with you Saturday to celebrate such a dear cousin as Janaan. I miss you all and my heart is with you. Janaan came to Moms funeral in 2008 and seeing her at that time was such a joy as always. I could talk to her for hours. Gwen, Mattie, Patricia, Mattie, Darryl and Bobby and all family you have my prayers and sympathy. Praying God brings strong love and comfort to you. I do love you all. Mom and Dad kept that love of all of you cousins and our aunts and uncles alive in our home. God bless, Jadi Martin
